Looks like he did it- Unofficial distance of 179.something km is just slightly further than Seychelle Hattingh's 178 km. At the end his nose was bleeding and he looked like hell with blood all over his rashguard. He still had 15 minutes left at the end of his last lap and I was telling him to keep paddling for one more partial lap to seal the deal, but he was like, "I need to get OFF this board NOW." It was fun paddling some laps with him, but I was glad to get into my cozy sleeping bag while he had to keep suffering all night. Tough dude.
