The 1000km Paddle Challenge Begins June 2016

This particular month was chosen due to the wind and swell patterns this time of year, which usually come from the southeast. This is also close to the east coast whale migration time which should provide some life changing encounters and memorable moments mid paddle!

The entire 1000km paddle will take up to 43 days, allowing for weather/environmental conditions, as well as rest/recovery days.
