Red Paddle Co:  Get on board with 4-person team racing

Red Paddle Co., the world’s most popular standup paddle inflatable brand, has announced an entirely new concept in standup paddle competition, featuring 4-person team racing.  Let me quantify that.  That’s a 4-person team standing on ONE sup at the same time and racing other teams doing same.  Now, that’s a competition!

Unleash the Dragon!

Using Red Paddle Co.’s newly designed twenty-two foot Dragon Race Board, Dragon teams will compete in dozens of events across the globe.  The final culmination of which will be the Dragon World Series to be held in Carlisle Bay, Barbados on October 28-30th, 2017.

The teams will each race on this twenty-two foot long, 34-inch wide inflatable paddleboard designed by Red Paddle Co. who’s unique MSL technology makes each board incredibly rigid, lightweight and easy to transport.  These Red Dragon boards will be available for teams and people to demo at each of the World Series’ regional events.  Every team that competes in a regional event will automatically qualify to participate in the World Championships in Barbados next October.

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
