Three Michigan Guys Paddleboarding Across Superior
Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world - and three guys from northern Michigan plan to paddleboard across it.
According to WZZM13, the three, Kwin Morris, Joe Lorenz and Jeff Guy, call themselves the "Three Standup Guys" (you know, because they stand up on...oh, you got that, alright) will start the trip at Sinclair Cove, Ontario, Canada and will finish at Whitefish Point. The trip will be 57 miles and should take about 30 hours. They'll have two support boats flanking them during the trip, which will be a charity fundraiser and should raise $10,000 for the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society.
It's not like these guys are totally nuts. They've already paddleboarded across Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. But, they're aware that Lake Superior is a different animal. "The waves can pick up like crazy in a matter of seconds on Lake Superior," said Kwin. "Superior's weather and waves have taken thousands of sailors and their ships to the grave."
They've planned to do this anytime between July 9th (yesterday) and July 20th.
