50-Year-Old Spaniard SUPs From San Fran to Oahu

Antonio De La Rosa, a 50-year-old Spaniard, has just made history by stand-up paddle boarding from San Francisco, California, to Honolulu, Hawaii. The 2,900-mile crossing took him 76 days of paddling 12 hours per day on his customized vessel.

De La Rosa described the journey as "4740km of absolute loneliness and self-sufficiency" on the Facebook page dedicated to covering his voyage. Unlike many long-distance ocean voyagers, De La Rosa eschewed a safety vessel, and was truly on his own throughout the entire journey. 

De La Rosa named his vessel "The Ocean Defender" to raise awareness of marine pollution, and took photos of the various plastics, nets, and fishing lines which he encountered on the open ocean. Congratulations to De La Rosa on an epic journey done for the right reasons!

If you enjoy adventures in the great outdoors, odds are that you're not content staying put in one place for too long. There are simply too many places to go and things to do for an adventurer to remain happy in a single locale. Combined with the ludicrous cost of living in many mountain towns, this desire for mobility and flexibility has led to the rise in "vanlife," a phenomenon in which spend copious amounts of time and money transforming commercial vans into mobile, self-contained homes.

The North Face Unveils ‘PERSPECTIVES’, A Film Series Exploring Change

Change is a constant of life. We can’t control change, but we have autonomy over how we react to it. For folks who thrive in the outdoors, this rings especially true. We’re constantly at the mercy of Mother Nature, coping with changing elements, seasons, conditions, or goals. For someone like filmmaker Renan Ozturk, his life was always dictated by climbing. It was his compass, guiding him from one grand adventure to the next. But Ozturk wouldn’t be the filmmaker he is today had he never
