Round-the-World SUP Trip

PADDLERS: Bart De Zwart

Last Spring, Bart De Zwart Bart set out on a round-the-world expedition with photographer Franz Orsi, with the goal to visit and paddle in some of earth’s most remote destinations. The tour included stops in Micronesia, Nepal, India, Ethiopia, Istanbul, and finally to Mexico, where Bart completed his journey and rejoined the rest of the paddling world at the ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championships. The duo traveled with a pair of inflatables, which came in critically handy considering this journey contained 17 separate flights. In the end, they came away with some unforgettable, unprecedented experiences, which Bart documented in his blog about the journey.
