Relay Surfski teams are encouraged to find a suitable sized partner, or a ski with easily adjusting foot pedals so that no craft changes are needed. If substitute crafts are used, it is subject to paddlers finding an escort willing to change crafts mid channel. And, if substitute crafts are used, relief paddler must be facing towards Molokai when his or her partner paddles up for the switch. OC-1 relay teams must use one canoe.

All relay teams are entered in the age group of the youngest team member. Hence, youngest paddler determines your category. If Junior and adult paddle together the category is 19-39 (19 – 54 for OC-2).

Surfski solo and Tandem relay teams will default top 3 to open with age group placing starting with 4th place.
