Bora Bora KXT Ironmana Full Documentary

By now you’ve heard of the Bora Bora KXT Ironmana. Competitors for the overall waterman and waterwoman titles must swim, prone paddle and standup paddle in a multitude of events over four days to become Ironmana champions. The event is held on Bora Bora, in the islands of French Polynesia, one of the most postcard-worthy places on Earth.

This year we were lucky enough to be invited to participate in the event. There was a camera crew on hand to capture the whole thing, from a select few competitors crossing from the island of Tahiti to Bora Bora in traditional Tahitian sailing canoes prior to the main event to all the different tortures event coordinator Stephan Lambert put us through. They put together a beautiful 35-minute documentary of all of it, so sit back and enjoy watching us work hard in paradise. You’ll be surprised at how much everyone smiles.
