Red Dragon 4 Person Race Board
Until now, paddle boarding has a sport that has been difficult to enjoy as part of a team. Of course, you can always race against your friends and competitors on your own SUP board. However, that has all changed with the release of the awesome Red Dragon 4 Person Race Board. The Red Paddle Co. have designed a 22ft-long inflatable SUP board for 4 persons. To coincide with the release of the Red Dragon paddle board, Red Paddle Co. are also launching the “Dragon World Series” which is a global team racing league designed to make paddleboarding a truly team sport.
The Red Dragon 4 Person Race Board
The Red Dragon paddle board uses patented MSL (Monocoque Structural Laminate) technology. This has allowed Red Paddle Co. to design inflatable SUP boards that are lighter that are stiffer at lower pressures and are 100% thermosealed. All Red Paddle Co. boards perform amazingly on the water, and the Red Dragon is no different. The Red Dragon team racing board is an incredible 22 feet long and 34 inches wide. It has enough space for 4 paddlers to stand comfortably. This gives an incredible amount of speed and power to paddleboard racing that has never been seen before.
Features of the Red Dragon Race Board
Apart from looking awesome with 4 paddlers on the boards, the Red Dragon board boasts all of the features that have made Red Paddle Co. leaders in SUP design and production. Here are the main features of the race board:
- Profiled nose
- Slim body
- High sides to slice through the waves
- Strong, stiff board thanks to the double-layered fusion construction
- Removable fin
- 8 carry handles
- Non-slip EVA deck pad with Dragon emblazoned on it
Along with the 4-person inflatable SUP board, you also get a waterproof cellphone case and 4 Red Paddle Co. Ezee pumps which easily inflate the board to 25psi.
