With only his Red Paddle Co 13’2 Explorer stand-up paddle board (SUP) and a hammock he will begin his journey hike over 2200 metres into the mountains of Horton Plains National Park to find the source of The Mahaweli River. Then he will begin paddling 208 miles through the jungle to The Bay of Bengal. He also states that he will attempting to SUP Sri Lanka’s entire coastline, a further 800 miles. The bay of Bengal is considered the largest bay in the world.
