Urban Beach are very proud to be on board and join the adventure with the first ever Celtic Crossing as an official partner!

 

This radical and extremely risky 50km paddle event will take place between the Isles of Scilly and Sennen Beach on UK main land on the 17th May 2014.

 

The open water between these two land masses is some of the most dangerous and busiest stretches of ocean in the world, and 5 of the water sports world’s elite will be undertaking the challenge; including big wave surfer and Urban Beach brand ambassador Tom Butler!

 

Tom will be swapping fins and wax for a paddle as he and the rest of the athletes attempt to set five records for the fastest man powered crossings between the Scilly’s and Sennen Beach; combatting currents, the elements and shipping traffic in one of the most daring open ocean races in the world and the only race between land masses in Europe!

 

Check out an interview with Tom below.

 

Tom and the rest of the crew will be hoping to rack up a gruelling 6 hours of paddling time, and will be supported by a flotilla of water safety craft and crew who will also help provide media coverage.

 

We are thrilled to be part of this inspiring event and we will be kitting out the crew and athletes with a selection of Urban Beach’s best products from our Summer 14 clothing line!
