PADDLER: Ben Friberg

In June, Ben Friberg set the 24-hour standup distance record when he paddled 238 miles, riding the runoff of the Yukon River in the Northwest Territories. Friberg started at the north end of Lake Laberge and finished 24 hours later having set the Guinness World Record. Friberg’s goal was to finish at 200 miles when he reached the Ingersolle Islands but was able to surpass that by 38 miles.
