British stand up paddle board (SUP) brand Red Paddle Co is packing up its bus for an epic road trip around the UK giving anyone who fancies it the opportunity to have a ride on one of its boards and see for themselves why SUP-ing is the world’s fastest growing watersport.

To celebrate the London stop of its tour, Red Paddle Co has teamed up with The Wharf to give readers the chance to win their very own board (worth £849).

The prize consists of the world’s best-selling inflatable board – the Ride 10ft 6ins – as well as all the kit needed to get the winner on the water – a paddle, leash, pump and bag.

The tour is designed for young and old alike 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 free of charge – just register your interest .

Red also makes a massive paddle board capable of supporting four people

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).

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 22ft 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.
