Welcome to the North Shore Swim Series!
In the late 80’s a handful of swimmers & surfers created the North Shore Swim Series, and within just a few years it become a community favorite for those looking to experience unique open water swim races in a variety of distances and locations along Oahu’s fabled North Shore.
“The North Shore Swim Series is like no other swim event in Hawaii,” – Chris Gardner, Race Director-. “We offer picturesque swims that include iconic venues like Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay and Chun’s Reef. Swimmers of all ages and abilities come out to participate and we look to provide the best experience possible for everyone.”
With nearly three decades of ocean swimming in its history, organizers are pleased to offer 5 swim races over the course of the summer. Each swim showcases its own venue and race distance, staring with a ‘Summer Sprint’ one mile course at Sunset Beach and increasing the distance on each race finishing with a 2.3 mile swim ‘Challenge’ across several points of the “7 mire miracle”.
