ACA SUP Instructor Circumnavigates Puerto Rico

Today is the day ACA certified SUP instructor, Mike Simpson, embarks on his 273 nautical mile circumnavigation of Puerto Rico! 

Best known for his epic 2,000+ mile self-supported paddleboard expedition from Florida to Maine, Mike's latest adventure is something he's been planning for over a year. He hopes to raise awareness about ocean pollution during his voyage.

"I'd heard the stories about large amounts of garbage in the ocean, but until I saw it first-hand along the entire eastern seaboard I really had no idea how serious it was," said Mike. "Plastic bottles are so convenient, but it's important for people to realize that convenience comes at a cost. I just ask that people seriously consider using reusable bottles whenever possible instead of disposable bottles."

The ACA wishes Mike a safe and happy journey. Stay tuned for more updates from his trip!
