On June 27 2016, Charlie departed from London with only his board and basic supplies in an attempt to stand up paddle around the UK. He completed the 1000km Land's End to London leg of the UK in 2012 and now has become the first person to explore the entire coastline of England and Wales by SUP!
The trip took 5 months to complete, He was also 'supping for his supper'. With only limited food supplies that he can carry on his board, and no cash, Charlie relyed on the generosity of his supporters and the public to donate meals that will fuel his continued journey.
Leaving the coast better than he found it
A huge part of Charlie's journey around the UK is aimed at raising awareness of the detrimental effect of plastics on the ocean environment. Charlie will undertake beach cleans at many of his stops around the UK, inviting local communities to join in.
