Red Paddle Dragon Race

The ultimate four-person SUP race that’s perfect for the whole family, beginners and pros alike! Promising to deliver an action packed day of belly laughs, and some good old-fashioned competition, the huge 22-foot inflatable Dragon board is unique to Red Paddle Co and is all about building camaraderie and team spirit on the water.
This is a must-see and must-participate event!

How it works

We’re looking for 20 teams of 4 to participate in the first Red Paddle Co Dragon Race at Q Station’s Quarantine Beach.

Teams will race in a series of heats around a pre-defined course just offshore in the protected waters of Sydney Harbour before we assemble the winning teams for the grand finale race to see who takes home the title of Dragon Race champion.

The aim of the game is pure fun, we’ll have prizes for the best-dressed teams, the best name, the best dismount, and maybe even the best stack! You don’t need to be experienced to register, just grab 3 friends, or the fam and register your team to take place.

Not keen to get in the water but absolutely want to see all the action? No problems, register your attendance at the event and that’s it, come down, pick your spot to see all the action, and enjoy a great day of water sports.

Register your attendance or register a team to participate in the Dragon Race!
