[Wild Outside] Episode 12: Ben Friberg & Chattajack

Posted by Seth Bigham on

This week we sat down with Ben Friberg to discuss endurance paddling, Chattajack 31, and the future of SUP in Chattanooga, TN. 

Ben is an endurance athlete who, in 2012, set the Guiness World Record for the longest distance travelled on a SUP in 24 hours at 238 miles! He then went on to be the first person to paddle from Cuba to the US on a SUP in 2013. 

Ben and his wife, Kimberley, have long given back to the community through hosting their weekly local race series and putting on Chattajack, the massive paddle board race through the TN River gorge.
