Three categories: Surfboards, Foilboards, and TwinTips.
Awards Ceremony immediately following the last few finishers reaching the beach.
Everyone will begin the downwinder about 20 miles away from the finish line. This will be a fun, competitive, and exciting downwind drag race. If you like to go downwind and like to do it quickly, this is the race for you! There will be boat support throughout the race.
Not looking to "compete", don't worry! This is a perfect event for folks just looking to do a fun downwinder, too! There will be three different categories of board options to give fair chance of victory to all those out there competing. During the awards ceremony, we will also have prizes for a number of categories beyond just the first few places, so you will want to plan on sticking around after the race!! Plenty of refreshments and snacks at the finish line waiting for you to enjoy and recover from the downwinder!
**More precise details, such as start time and location, to be announced as it gets closer. If wind does not cooperate on the 5th, we will move event to Sunday, October 6th.**
This event weekend will be the largest of all our events this year, and the one you will not want to miss!!
