Border to Border SUP

As I write this, there's a guy named Will Schmidt who is paddling his surfboard somewhere off the coast of San Diego.  For the last 58 days, Will has made his way from the US/Canada border, all the way down the west coast, towards the border with Mexico.
This is an unprecidented stand-up-paddle expedition, and it's all being done to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
Here's a local news piece on Will Schmidt and his journey.
"Weather! Water! Whales! O.C. man paddling from Canada to Mexico is seeing it all"
By the time you read this, Will may have already finished his journey.
As he approaches the finish line, I expect he'll have at least a few friends rowing, paddling, and motoring alongside - with that kind of moral support, I'm certain that he will finish.
So big congratulations to Will Schmidt!
Thanks for supporting a great cause, and inspiring all of us.
