A SUPerior Adventure

PADDLERS: Jared Munch

A SUPerior Adventure – On May 20, 22-year-old Jared Munch set out from Duluth, Minnesota, on a mission to become the first person to ever circumnavigate Lake Superior by SUP. Averaging about 30 miles per day, Munch covered the 1,400-mile journey in just under two months and two weeks, landing in Lester River, Duluth, on July 29. He did it all alone, on a 14-foot SUP, packing a load of three large dry bags with food, camping gear and clothing on his bow. Camping most of the way, Munch spent most of his nights camped out on the Superior’s shores, with the exception of a few nights spent in the sanctuary of accommodations offered by friendly locals.
