WOW! here we are at the fifth anniversary of the TikiSwim and we are stoked. When we started the TikiSwim we were the first event to offer a wetsuit category that was awarded equally yet separately from traditional swimmers. Additionally we were also the first to have an aid station on the water stocked with water and Hammer Nutrition hydration and nutrition products.
Another aspect of the TikiSwim that sets it apart are our amazing awards and race swag. The TikiSwim trucker hats are in high demand and are only available to our finishers. Additionally, our finisher’s leis are hand woven by the Oceanside Outrigger and Canoe club and our awards are hand carved and shipped straight to us from Bali.
To celebrate TikiSwim5 all swimmers will receive a commemorative hand carved Tiki direct from our carvers in Bali. These will replace the finisher medals we have used in the past.
Lastly, as part of the two day Oceanside Harbor Days Festival, the TikiSwim is a very family friendly race. After the swim, shop and play with your family and friends at the festival featuring 400 plus vendor booths.
We look forward to another great event and thank all of swimmers, volunteers and sponsors for helping us build such a great event!!
