Jackson English one of the top paddleboaders in the world dropped us a line about how his 2011 Molokai World Championship training was panning. Needless to say, Jacko is back on the grind even as he works full-time as a professor at the United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA) in Singapore.
“That’s because of the 5 knot current that was running with the outgoing tide. We’re all in close to get out of it. There is one spot where the incoming current moves so fast that you can be on a stationary bump with half of the nose buried in the water like you are on an actual bump but not really move anywhere. In that spot, on a bad day, it can take 10 minutes to move 500 meters.”-Jacko
