Red Paddle Co Red Dragon Barbados competition

Red Paddle Co, the world’s most popular stand up paddleboard brand, took a bold move last October and launched the world’s first inflatable 22 ft, 4 person racing SUP. To give this multi-human behemoth a space to really shine, the Dragon World Series was create!

The series began in Hong Kong in February this year, with 30 other events being held this Summer around the world. The season will come to an autumn climax at the inaugural Dragon World Championships in Carlisle Bay, Barbados at the end of October, blending fast, fun racing with a Caribbean festival party vibe.

Each race will vary in length and format and have been designed to test team camaraderie, co-ordination, and determination, as much as flat out speed and power. There will be several divisions enabling people of all ages and abilities to take part. With celebrations and entertainment throughout the day and running on late into the night, the Championships are set to be the ultimate paddleboard event.

The location of our inaugural Dragon World Championships was never under question. For us, Barbados always seemed like the perfect spot. From white powdery beaches to turquoise-green waters encompassing the entire island, this idyllic haven has a little something for everyone. Whether it’s soaking up the rays from your sun-lounger, sampling the fresh local cuisine or trying your luck at some daredevil water sports, you certainly won’t want to be leaving anytime soon. It’s time to escape reality and discover the picturesque utopia that is Barbados.

Now what’s an enjoyable holiday without a good night’s rest?! That’s exactly why we’ve teamed up with Sugar Bay Barbados Beach Resort, the ULTIMATE luxurious hotel, lying right alongside the beautiful aqua-green Caribbean Sea. Only 20 minutes from the airport and 2 minutes from Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados, the location couldn’t be more ideal for those of you looking to explore the island! With a range of recreation activities offered, including water sports and spa facilities, you’ll soon feel right at home!
