Standup Paddling Across The Atlantic

People have rowed and kayaked across the Atlantic, but if his plan comes together, next January Nicolas Jarossay will attempt to become the first person to stand-up-paddle unsupported across the mighty ocean.
He plans to paddle from Cape Verde off of Africa to Martinique in the Caribbean, a trip 4,000 km trip estimated to take 60 - 75 days using a specially designed paddleboard 6.3 metre paddleboard with a pod at the front for sleeping.
Jarossay is not the only person lining up an Atlantic corssing by SUP. Chris Bertish is also planning an SUP crossing from Morocco to Miami starting in November, 2016.
