Haven't heard from Lina Augaitis since her Yukon River Expedition last Summer, and we just got word that she's been hanging out in Thailand!
Here's the word...
I was part of a team that completed an exciting crossing in the southern Thai islands.
"The first annual SUP paddle crossing from Koh Lanta to Koh Phi Phi was just completed on 02/03/2012 and was a great event. Lanta Paddlesports organized the event and with the help of Starboard and Amara Watersports made it a great start to what will become an annual event hopefully turning into a sponsored race. The total distance was 32 kilometers and paddling time was 4 hours 32 minutes on Starboard Blend boards. There were 5 paddlers who completed the crossing including one Starboard Team Rider, Lina Augaitis. The other paddlers were Pete Compere (Owner, Lanta Paddlesports), Richard Billter (Swedish SUP Ambassador), Andrew Dye (Starboard Team Rider Crew), Stefan Druve Regen (Swedish SUP AmbassadThe next event from Lanta to Phi Phi is now being planned for next year in March so put it on your calendars and let us know if you want to join. Hope to see you next year."
