The Olympic swimmer Moss Burmester will trade the pool for the ocean this weekend, as he competes in the Hyundai Pro Longboard Tour at Whangamata.

The event is penultimate stop on the tour, which wraps up at the end of the month at Port Waikato.

Burmester admits his time in the event may be shortlived, but believes he'll be the fastest paddler in the water.
