Expandasign is proud to support Coolum Business and Tourism who partnered with Brisbane Coast Thundercats to present the inaugural ‘King Of Coolum’ Thundercat Race, which was held over two thrilling days on July 20-21, 2013
In this epic Aussies Vs. Kiwis battle, ten Thundercat crews from across Australia and New Zealand – including the current NZ Champion crew – were competing on Coolum’s main beach for the prestigious ‘King of Coolum’ title.
Expandasign sponsored a boat in this thrilling race. Expandasign and Coolum stood out from the rest on the beach and enjoyed excellent exposure with our branded Portable Pop Up Marquee and Feather Banners prominently displayed. As a sponsor Expandasign was also regularly being called live from the beach. It proved to be and adrenalin-fuelled fun filled day for the crowds.
The high-octane action – often described as an extreme version of IRB racing – got underway from 9am – 3pm on both days, with the ‘surf cross’ race format producing plenty of high-flying action.
The 4.1 metre long inflatable catamaran style surf boats can reach speeds of up to 90 km per hour and jump up to six metres in the air!
The Thunder Cats was a huge success and the Aussies won hands down, the Kiwi’s will be coming back next year and hopefully with 16 teams, this is something the organisers will be working on to make it happen and hope to have 30 boats competing next year.
