Substitute the swim portion with

Kayak Or Stand up Paddle Boarding

If you don’t swim or you’re a kayaking/stand up paddle board fiend you can substitute the swim portion of the triathlon with a paddle. The course tours Morro Bay in clockwise direction, course and turns are clearly marked with buoys. The paddle starts and ends at Mothers Beach.

Ocean sit-on-tops, touring kayaks, surf skis, and stand up paddle boards are all welcome.

The paddle option will be divided between Kayaks and SUP
The Olympic course is 3 miles.
The Sprint course is 1.6 miles.

You will be in a separate category from the other triathletes if you choose the paddle option.
