Red Paddle Co Launches Nationwide Roadtrip

Red Paddle Co is packing up its bus for an epic road trip around the UK giving everyone who fancies it, the opportunity to have a ride on one of their boards and see for themselves why SUP is the world's fastest growing watersport.

Red Paddle Co only produces inflatable boards and is the number one brand of choice across the world. As its strapline 'explore your world' implies, Red is doing just this and taking its boards on a nationwide tour.

The free-to- attend, six stage road trip kicks off in Bray Lake, Maidenhead on Saturday, 29th July in conjunction with Lizzie Carr's Plastic Patrol clean up event, then heads to Tallington Lakes, Peterborough (30th July), onto Manley Mere in Cheshire (1st Aug), North Dock, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire (2nd Aug), Wakeup Docklands, London (3rd Aug) supported by special partners and the final stop in Newquay, Cornwall (5th Aug) which will see the first ever XL sruf competition.

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. This is the public's chance to try all the activities completely free of charge!

"Stand up paddle boarding has undoubtedly been taking over the watersports world," explains Charlotte Green Head of Marketing at Red Paddle Co. "Most people have heard of SUP and if they've not tried it then it's certainly gone on people's list of 'things to do'.

"We're giving people the opportunity to try SUP, completely for free and get a feel for what it entails. For more experienced paddlers, improver sessions will be on offer to hone your skills. There will also be SUP Yoga classes – one of the hottest new activities to centre your chi – as well as SUP fitness classes to take your paddle boarding skills to the next level."

"Giving it a go is undoubtedly the best way for people to see if SUP is for them and we're outrageously confident that they'll be hooked as soon as they get on!"

"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 27-30th 2017!

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!"
