o SUP and Prone solo: If there is a resounding amount of entries, we’ll open up age group divisions, with top 3 overall being recognized as open, and age groups per board division beginning at 4th place.
o All relay teams are entered in the age group of the youngest team member. Hence, youngest paddler determines your category.
o Relay teams in all disciplines will default top 3 to open with age group placing starting with 4th place.
o There will be 3 starting times to send slower crafts and paddlers earlier. There will be a time cut off, so if you are slow and you want to finish the race, you should start in one of the first two starts. It is mandatory to start at the time for which you registered!
o Prize money is limited only to Surfski and OC-1

Start Times: Early start times are mandatory for slower crafts and recommended for paddlers who know they will be slow. YOU MUST START AT THE TIME FOR WHICH YOU REGISTERED!

Course Closes at 3:30 pm. If you are not at Portlock Point by 3:30 pm, you must pack your craft on your escort and ride in. If you continue paddling without authorization by the officials you will be disqualified. This is a safety precaution as we need to be certain all persons are safely accounted for on Oahu well before dark in the event of an emergency.
