The Thundercats return to Coolum Beach

Categories: Blog - Tags: ,

Come see the Thundercats in action during the second annual “King of Coolum” Thundercats race.  This event will be held on July 12-13, 2014 from 9 am until 3 pm.   

With thousands of spectators of all ages following Thundercat racing, this sport is quickly becoming the fastest-growing sport of the 21st century.   A Thundercat is an inflatable catamaran-style surf board that is designed especially for action.   This 4.1 metre long surf racer was engineered to race at high speeds just off the beach, reaching up to 90 km/h,  and can reach heights up to 6 metres in the air. The hi-jackers, which are found below the hulls, create traction and allow for high cornering speeds pulling 2Gs or more.

Thundercat racing is a sport which is all about fun, safety and fair racing.  It has a set of international rules that are all intended to create a sport in which all competitors are at an equal advantage.   Hulls and motors are limited to affordable out of the box equipment, making this a sport that is a demonstration of talent and skill rather than of expensive equipment.


In this exciting Aussies vs. Kiwis competition, Thundercat crews from across Australia and New Zealand will be coming together to compete for the “King of Coolum” title.  This free event, which is sponsored by local businesses, will be called live from the Sunshine Coast on Coolum Main Beach.  Bring your family to enjoy a weekend at the beach and to witness this lively sport.
