Paddle with us!

Formed in 1996 when dragon boat racing first became a sport in the Bay Area, Lightwave has since become a co-ed team with members from many backgrounds and disciplines. We are passionate about being out on the water, and paddle together twice a week. We compete regularly in races along the West Coast against local and international teams! And we love to hang out together outside of the boat, which usually involves enjoying good food together.

Lightwave is based at the Bair Island Aquatic Center (BIAC) at the port of Redwood City, CA. Occasionally, when the weather or tide conditions are not safe for paddling in Redwood City, we practice at Lake Merced in San Francisco.

Our regular practices are:

  1. Wednesdays, 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
  2. Sundays, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
