In 2011 two young Dutchmen, Robers Versprui and Joost Bienenmann, set out to paddle their kayaks around the world’s 5th biggest island, the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
Goal of this 4250km kickass pedalling journey was to inspire people and get more attention on biodiversity, in particular local indigenous communities and nature. For this they will visit different conservation and social projects around the coast, to help and get more attention for these initiatives.
The four month long trip consisted of a daily paddle between 40 and 60 kilometer. Being completely self sufficient definitely made this trip even more kickass.
