Picturing Pain: 2016 Bora Bora KXT Ironmana Gallery and Results

All Photos: Aaron Black-Schmidt

There’s something in the air at Ironmana. Or is it in the water? Or in the competition—four days of intense endurance racing Tahitian style, swimming, standup paddling, prone paddling and running in sand, baking in Bora Bora’s beating sun by day and basking in its cosmic sunset by nightfall? Or in the hospitality? Or in the camaraderie and the community?

It’s in all that and then some. Engaging in the Bora Bora KXT Ironmana Liquid Festival is a life-changing waterman experience centered on the principles that pain is inevitable, pain makes one stronger, and when you can learn to enjoy great pain mixed with great pleasure, well then, you’re living the dream. Which we did at Ironmana. SUP mag’s edit staff was fortunate enough to attend and compete in the event, and for that we are forever thankful to those who made it possible. We slept with turquoise water lapping at our front steps, we enjoyed the fine company of immaculate athletes, we tested ourselves to the fullest capacity and we reaped the rewards of overcoming unprecedented challenges.

So call it a competition, but yeah, Ironmana is a whole lot more than that.
