Earlier in 2014, Will Schmidt set a world record and was the first person to standup paddle largely unassisted from Canada all the way down to Mexico on his standup paddle board. As you can imagine, this journey was an incredible accomplishment for Will as well as a trying time while attempting to overcome mental breakdowns and physical exhaustion. Will’s journey lasted a total of 61 days, 58 of which he was paddling.
Will was paddling on the SIC Maui F-16 stand up paddle board for the entirety of his Journey.
