Red Paddle Co Racing will be hosting the ultimate team SUP world championships on the shores of Lake Fuschl, Austria, from August 31st –2nd September 2018. The Lakeside event will lead on from last year’s success of the Dragon World Championships which were held on the white sands of Carlise Bay, Barbados. This year we will see teams of all abilities, from all over the world battling it out to be crowned the 2018 victors.
The Dragon World Championships 2018 promises to be the most entertaining SUP event on the planet with headline partner Nike Swim joining the ride and a total prize package of over £7,000/$9,000 up for grabs, this event will be a true celebration of SUP and style. Races throughout the weekend, featuring the 22ft four-person Red Dragon board, will vary in length and format, designed to not only test speed and power, but team camaraderie, coordination and determination.
Charlie Green, Head of Marketing at Red Paddle Co told TotalSUP “Following a large number of Dragon races taken place this year all over the world, it’s clear that the teams who work together have the biggest advantage, an advantage which far outweighs any gender or age classification. We have team entries confirmed from around the world and although last year’s event definitely set the bar high, DWC 18 is set to be bigger, better and ultimately the most fun you’ll have on your SUP this year.”
Once again, there will be no divisions with both men, women, all ages and mixed teams competing for the title of Dragon World Champions and a chance to take home the first prize package totalling £4,000/$5,100 The expansive prize packages include three highly desirable premium waterproof radio and Bluetooth speaker Stereo Active from Fusion Entertainment, limited edition Red Paddle Co gin from Scottish gin brand Daffys along with the winning team taking home their very own 22-ft Dragon board and Carbon paddles.
