Red Paddle Co is packing up its bus for an epic road trip around the UK giving the opportunity to have a ride on one of their inflatable boards and see for themselves why SUP is the world’s fastest growing watersport.
The free-to- attend, six stage road trip kicks off in Bray Lake, Maidenhead on 29 July, then heads to Tallington Lakes, Peterborough (30 July), onto Manley Mere in Cheshire (1 Aug), North Dock, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire (2 Aug), Wakeup Docklands, London (3 Aug) and the final stop in Newquay, Cornwall (5 Aug).
With a board to match every rider, whether a complete beginner or a seasoned racer, the tour is open to all, providing visitors with the chance to meet other riders, find out more about the sport and put to the test some of the boards under expert supervision. The tour is designed for the young and old with the number one objective to get out on the water and have some fun, whether that’s trying out SUP for the first time, SUP yoga or SUP Fitness.
Red Paddle Co is also bringing some friends along to make the tour a ‘must attend’ event in the fitness or watersport lover’s calendar including, intensely fun ‘exercise’ classes by the Rabble team featuring immersive team games, suitable for everyone and Lululemon (technical clothing for running and yoga, with a cult following).
Charlotte Green Head of Marketing at Red Paddle Co. said: “Our Red Paddle Co SUPs are made for exploring; you simply inflate them from their own backpack and you’re ready to go! We can’t wait to meet everyone on the trip and share with them our kit and SUP knowledge.”
At each location Red Paddle Co visits, alongside SUP yoga and SUP fitness there will be other activities to try including guided SUP tours. Plus, each of the road trip stops will be officially recognised as a ‘Dragon World Series’ event where participants can take part in races on the four-person 22’ Red Dragon board, mixing the intensity of SUP racing with the camaraderie of team spirit.
Every participant in a Dragon race will be granted instant qualification to the Dragon World Championships in Barbados, on October 27 – 30.
Red Paddle Co’s special tour bus will also double up as its very own party pad and may even open the bar with the help of Daffys Gin, who will be joining for much of the tour. Charlotte Green concludes “Even if you don’t fancy getting out on the water, just come along and join in the fun!”
