A Man Paddles From California to Hawaii


How did you spend your summer vacation? A Spanish man named Antonio de la Rosa spent his on a paddleboat. Like, all of it.

de la Rosa spent 76 consecutive days making his way from California to Hawaii - a 2,500 mile tripe - on a custom-made paddleboat shaped like a submarine.

He says he spent 8 to 10 hours a day paddling and would sleep at night. For food, he packed dehyrdrated food and would also fish.

de la Rosa likes to challenge himself - past "vacations" have included paddle-surfing for 141 days and riding a bicycle across the Iditarod in Alaska. Unsurprisingly, his day job is running an "adventure tourism business" with his sister.
