RUMBLE ON THE REEF  is a swim-paddle-swim-paddle format that can be entered either as a solo event or as a 2 person relay.  There will be kid’s races first, followed by the adult event.  And, sponsor pending, there will also be a SUP 3 person relay for kids (SUPs and paddles provided by Blowfish inflatable SUP boards).

For kids the course will be all inside the bay and much shorter than the adult course.  The adult course will be approximately as follows:

  • *Fronting Kailua Beach, inside and around Flat Island.
  • *2 swim legs and 2 paddling legs (2 different types of paddle craft) with a short beach run in-between each transition.
  • *The participants will start with a 300 meter swim
  • * Then can choose to paddle either a 12’ prone or a 14’ and under SUP board with no rudder for approximately 1.5 miles (there will be a shorter, handicapped length for prone),
  • * Then there will be another 300 meter swim
  • * Followed by another paddle in either a surfski or an OC-1 for approximately 2.5 miles (There will be a shorter, handicapped length for OC-1).
  • *People can do the race either solo or as a relay.
