CTC572 Green Island
The prospect of kite surfing across the Pacific is something most people wouldn’t even consider, but for Canadian-born adventurer Adrian Midwood, it was a dream come true.
The three and a half thousand nautical mile open ocean expedition from Tonga to Australia was fuelled by Adrian’s desire to spread the word about renewable energy.
His home during the two month adventure was onboard a
modified Tiki 38 sailing catamaran; a working model of low-impact sustainable energy technology, which he doubled as a floating classroom throughout the Pacific Islands.
Adrian’s next big challenge is establishing an education program focusing on ways to generate revenue from recycled waste plastic in Pacific Island communities and after successfully crossing an ocean with just a surfboard and a stiff breeze behind him, chances are there’s not much that’ll stand in his way.
