ALL FOR THE SWIM: Kona 2017

This year's IRONMAN World Championship is going down on Saturday, October 14th, and blueseventy will be there a full week ahead of the event to ensure athletes are equipped with the very finest swim gear on race day. Heading to Kona and wondering where to find us? You've come to the right place. Here's a snapshot of where we will be stationed throughout the week. 


the blueseventy booth

Uncle Billy's
Monday, Oct. 9 - Friday, Oct. 13
9 AM - 5 PM


Join us and Rudy Project, Wattie Ink and more at Uncle Billy's on Ali'i Drive. Shop our Kona streamlined product selection of swimskins including the new short sleeve PZ4TX+, goggles (be sure to try-on the new NR2 race goggle) and our summer swimwear. Looking to upgrade your swimskin? Good news for you: Bring it to our booth for a discount on a brand new one. We take swimskins from any brand in any condition. Even if you don't need any blueseventy gear (cause you're smart and you got everything you needed months ahead of time - yea, we know your type), drop by to spin the winning wheel for a chance to score some sweet limited edition Kona gear.

Coffee Boat

Kailua Bay (about 500 meters from Dig Me Beach)
Monday, Oct. 9 - Friday, Oct. 13
7 AM until the coffee runs dry (around 9 AM)


No trip to the IRONMAN World Championship is complete without sipping coffee in the middle of the sea. We've teamed up with our friends at CLIF Bar to host this year's Coffee Boat. Don't miss this chance to sip on one of the best cups of Joe you will get on the island. Coffee not your jam? No sweat, we will also have a great selection of CLIF Electrolyte Drink Mix. Be sure to get there early and score one of the limited orange bracelets that the blueseventy crew will have daily. Stop by the our booth at Uncle Billy's with your bracelet on and score free goggles! You already have goggles? Oh please, everyone can use more goggles!

We will be hosting a wake-up swim on Wednesday morning at 7:30 to the Coffee Boat. Join blueseventy athletes Tim Don, Camilla Pedersen, Pete Jacobs, Kate Bevilaqua, Guy Crawford and others at Dig Me Beach (look for the orange blueseventy flag). Be sure to ask the athletes for an orange bracelet. If Kailua Bay doesn't wake you up, the coffee at the boat will!
