Description

Coolum Business and Tourism will again partner with Brisbane Coast Thundercats to present the fifth annual ‘King Of Coolum’ Thundercat Race, to be held over two exciting days.

In what has proven to be an epic Aussies Vs. Kiwis battle, Thundercat crews from across Australia and New Zealand will be competing on Coolum’s main beach for the prestigious ‘King of Coolum’ title.

The high-octane action – often described as an extreme version of IRB racing – gets underway from 9am – 2pm on both days, with the ‘surf cross’ race format producing plenty of high-flying action certain to thrill spectators.

The 4.1 metre long inflatable catamaran style surf boats can reach speeds of up to 90 km per hour and jump up to six metres in the air!

Each boat is sponsored by a local Coolum business and races will be called live from the beach. Come on down join in the adrenalin-fuelled fun!

Cost: Free
