Guts Achieves the First SUP Crossing of the Bristol Channel

Posted on April 22, 2010 - Filed Under Stand Up Paddling, Surftech Boards | By

Hi guys,

Just to let you know that Myself and a friend (Adam England) crossed the Bristol Channel from Wales to England on Sunday, through some thick sea fog in the shipping lanes and strong tidal currents, then back into the glorious sunlight for the final leg.

We started in Port Eynon in Wales and landed at Ilfracoombe in North Devon, England 6 hours and 23 miles later, but due to strong currents, I think we must have covered about 30. A first for SUPs, and even better to have done so on my 14″ Laird Coast Runner.

Check out a few of the shots from the crossing here:
