The Big Kahuna is proud to participate in this program by offering an AquaBike category!
The event starts and finishes near the historic Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, CA. The courses are almost entirely coastal with breathtaking views of the rugged California coast, lighthouses and a dramatic finish at the main stage of the Beach Boardwalk.
