There’s humpbacks like…
I think they’re going to come up under me right now.
I don’t know where they went, they’re so close.
We’re paddling, maybe 50 yards away from each other.
And Brian sees these two humpbacks.
Just kind of like checking us out, curious？
The most magical thing I think I’ve ever experienced.
The Baja project was really an effort to life.
Get to know Baja in the most intimate way possible.
Come on, the ultimate unchecked adventure.
We did 600 miles of hiking and 400 miles of stand-up.
These are 111 days.
The first five days of the stand-up paddle
were the worst of the trip,
like I was paddling and literally going nowhere.
Pretty much on a treadmill,
because the wind and the waves
were just keeping me in one, one area.
We got caught on this island for about three days,
during heavy wings.
It was really bad.
And on the fourth day,
it was clear that
it was gonna stay calm for at least like a couple hours.
And we were really booking it to make it to the other side.
Because we didn’t know
when this wind was going to pick up again,
like we already get into trouble there,
it would be unlikely that we would survive.
And so we were actually taking a big risk
in stopping for these whales.
Have we been safe,
and just continued to paddle to shore,
thinking about the wind the whole time,
we would have never been able to
interact with these humpbacks like you did.
If you’re too cautious,
you’re gonna miss out.
There’s something about the misadventure
that kind of makes up the whole adventure.
My mind is blown right now.
Yeah, pretty crazy.
