Blazing Paddles is a Coed Dragon Boat team, with members of all ages and from every walk of life. We are located in BrowardCounty, Florida, and practice year-round in Hollywood, FL. We strive to be our best, and the team has won many championships, including the IDBF Community Division World Championship; its members have set (and still hold) a dragon boat racing world record; and several have paddled in IDBF and ICF World Championships. But what really sets us apart is that we have fun doing it and we like teaching new paddlers. Come on out and join us.No experience needed, just a great attitude! With a team motto, “Paddle or Be Paddled,” you’re sure to have a good time.

Update as of 2021:
BP follows CDC guidelines regarding pandemic protocols. Please call us to cancel your appearance if you are ill. As of June 2021 we wear masks on shore and you may remove yours once on the water. We account for vaccination status in how we seat people. If you prefer not to tell us your status that's ok. We will presume unvaccinated if not told otherwise. About 90% of our paddlers are vaccinated.
