Northcore paddle team lends Seacology a helping hand
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 14 March, 2014 - Northcore have always embraced the spirit of adventure so are stoked to hear from individuals who are pushing boundaries, getting out there exploring, pursuing their dreams and often trying to make a positive difference along the way.
One such project is by a small team from Bristol, UK, who have recently set off to Central America with a goal of establishing an all new prone paddle board distance record, adding some conservation work and surfing along the way.
The Bristolian adventurers lead by Rob Cunliffe aim to set off on the 24th March 2014 along a route in Panama aiming to break the current 345 mile prone paddle record.
Along the way they will be searching for and hopefully documenting locations of the Antillian Manatee plus scoring and surfing some previously undiscovered surf breaks. The boards being used are one 16ft wooden San’O board and a standard 14ft paddle board along with which they will be using a range of Northcore hardware and essentials to assist in the adventure.
The team will be supporting Seacology a charity who run human-environment linked conservation projects in coastal Panama www.seacology.com.
