02 Jun Two Adventurers Paddle Around Bali While Raising Awareness and Support for Marine Conservation
This July, sports adventurers and fitness coaches Mike Brumby and Lukas Gallu are attempting to paddle their boards around the entire island of Bali to raise awareness about our oceans and generate support for marine conservation. The journey will take 16 days and cover around 450km. During their paddling journey, they will also stop at various schools to speak about the importance of marine conservation.
This challenge will be completed for a good cause. Proceeds from the challenge will go towards Coral Triangle Center’s coral restoration program and also providing environmental education to public school children living in the Nusa Penida Marine Protected Area.
Mike, a UK national who has lived in Indonesia since he was three years old, works as a sports teacher and fitness coach in Surabaya. He is passionate about water sports including windsurfing, which has given him a taste for life on the water. Lukas is a master of water sports and hails from Sumba. He is the number one ranked SUP rider in Indonesia. Kitesurfing, surfing, and hydrofoil surfing are among this athlete’s exceptional skills.
On 2 July 2022, Mike and Lukas will start and end their 16-day journey in Sanur around the island, paddling 6 hours every day (20km to 45km per day). Follow Mike and Lukas’ journey in social media via Instagram: @thebaliislandpaddle
