This great new format provides a fantastic spectacle with swimmers entering and exiting the surf three times before crossing the finish line. This means more opportunities for your fellow Weekend Warriors to cheer you on and also allowing you to bask in the glory of the crowd!
Following the Kings of the Coast Ocean Swim Festival 1500m Relay Challenge is the 300m Kid’s Surf Dash.
