Adam is our Adventure/Explorer! This crazy guy is attempting to paddle our FatStick Airborne SUP over 4000 miles down on of the deadliest rivers on the planet. He will have to contend with crocodiles, hippos and huge white water rapids through many war-torn countries. He’s a super nice guy and has already completed a paddle down the whole river Themes on his FatStick SUP.
Sonja has an amazing story. She has been a keen kayaker for many years and lately used SUP as part of her recovery for MS. Sonja loves being out in the sea paddling her FatStick 12’6 inflatable touring board and has recently paddled around huge parts of Malta. The goal was a completed trip around the whole Maltese islands, however unfortunately the weather let the party down. We are sure she will be out there again soon completing what the weather didn’t let her do the first time around. Pic Credit: Georgina Maxwell.
