NOTE: When Haley paddles out he paddles out by himself on a SUP.  No boats taking him out through the lineup.  No Jetski assist. 

He may get rescued by a friendly 'saftey patrol' when he crashes on a wave but he gets out on his own.  Haley said it took 1 hour and 15 minutes to paddle out on December 8th, 2020.  That's more than an hour of 8 to 15 feet of whitewater pounding you. 

The total distance needed to get from inside the break through the Mushroom or Blackhand reef system safely into the channel is ~300 hundred yards.  That amounts to 12 feet per minute.

Amazing.  Does he wear any protection (vest, hip, hydration pack, inflation vest)?
