The Ultimate SUP World Trip

The Ultimate SUP World Trip . 2 boards, 1 tent, 5 continents, 19 flights, and 27 days you could easily call this trip the Ultimate Crossing. Take a look at this documentary from this trip in the video below.

Follow Bart de Zwart and Franz Orsi on a trip of a lifetime during which they traveled around the world in 27 days .  Starting the trip off in the Pacific then heading to Asia, Africa, Europe and Central America, de Zwart and Orsi traveled to and met with remote civilizations with strong connections to the water.

The first stop on the world SUP excursion took place on a tiny island in Micronesia called Yap. This beautiful island and its inhabitants welcomed de Zwart and Orsi with open arms.

From here they flew to Kathmandu, Nepal when a day or so after arriving, disaster struck with a devastating earthquake.

After a few days in Nepal it was off to the next destination in a remote village called Omo Valley in Ethiopia. Here de Zwart and Orsi intrigued the locals with the sport of stand up paddling and taught many of the local children how to SUP.

The next stop took the twosome to Istanbul, Turkey where they explored and captured the beauty of the city from their paddle boards.

When it was time to leave Turkey, de Zwart and Orsi headed towards their final destination of Sayulita, Mexico for the ISA World SUP and Paddle Board Championships.

Franz Orsi is an Italian stand up paddler and professional outdoor photographer who has travelled extensively to capture stand up paddle in all its forms. He has teamed up with Bart de Zwart for many SUP explorations as well as with other Starboard team riders such as Connor Baxter, Sean Pointer and Leo Nika.

Bart De Zwart is arguably the most respected and accomplished navigational SUP paddler. He has traveled all around the world on his SUP and is a true waterman. De Zwart is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever come across on the water and land and a true ambassador of SUP.
