SUP the Exumas
35 Day Stand UP Paddleboard Journey
Take me back to the Exumas now please! It was a thrill of my lifetime to share SUP life for five weeks with my adventure partner Julia Wickham. Julia is a British free spirit with a contagious enthusiasm for life, people, community service, the arts, adventure and events. These passions have led her all over the world seeking adventure and projects to help make the world a better place. We stand up paddleboarded around the entire chain of Exumas while camping, fishing, swimming and soaking up the island life. It was a pleasure to discover the hidden stories, places and culture of the Exumas. The Exumas are an archipelago of 365 cays and islands, beginning just 35 miles southeast of Nassau. They are divided into three major areas—Great Exuma, Little Exuma and The Exuma Cays. We faced significant challenges in cay crossings, access to fresh water and food re-supplies. During our five journey we camped on 17 different islands, paddled the length of 60 different islands and traveled almost 300 by inflatable SUP.
One of the many highlights of the journey was sharing gratitude towards the sun and each other nightly! Absolutely some of the most spectacular sunsets either of us had ever seen. See you tomorrow sun. We love you
