This Man Just Paddleboarded From San Francisco To Oahu! (VIDEO)

Antonio De La Rosa traveled from California to Hawaii and he made the whole trip on a paddleboard!

He left San Francisco on June 9.

The 42-year-old ultra-endurance athlete from Spain is the first person to cross the Pacific Ocean as a stand-up paddleboarder.

He covered 2,500 miles of open ocean, using wind, currents, and elbow grease.

His vessel, The Ocean Defender, is a combo paddleboard and small boat with a sleeping cabin, storage bins, and solar panels for power.

He did it in 76 days.

There was no escort vessel; he was all alone.

He says the view out there was breathtaking.

But he did encounter floating plastics, nets, and discarded lines.

 

Jack and Carolyn talked about it on the air! Listen here:
