How Long Does It Take To Paddleboard From Cuba To Florida?



Ben Friberg is a 35 year old musician from Chattanooga, Tennessee who recently became the first person to paddleboard from Cuba to Florida. According to a Reuters interview, Friberg's almost entirely stand-up feat last week was an endeavor to "promote peace and understanding between Cuba and the United States and to promote a healthy lifestyle." The journey between Cuba and Key West, Florida is 110 miles. Friberg completed the trip in 28 hours, sitting only for snacks. He was followed by a support boat that included a navigator as well as a medic.
