The 'base' and the 'figure head' of this challenge as we travel around the British coastline. We are so pleased and proud to have Peugeot onboard and supplying us with two awesome vans for our support crew as they drive around the British coastline keeping Brendon safe and supporting him on his challenge.

Paddling Kit

Board
Board

A world record attempt requires the perfect board for the attempt. Brendon's board has been sponsored by Maccarthy Contractors. It is amazing to have a local south Devon company support ingby providing a hugely important piece of kit.

Paddle

Just like boards, Brendon was very specific about what he needed for a paddle for The Long Paddle. We are pleased to say after testing out many different paddles Blackfish Paddles have provided Brendon with paddled he needs for the trip.

Drybags
Drybags

Drybags are needed for kit on and off the water, Brendon will have one with him at all times whilst on the board to carry his safety equipment, extra layers and food/water. It is great to have the Fatstick Boards team supporting the paddle and providing the dry bags needed.

Safety

Personal Flotation Device (PFD)
Personal Flotation Device (PFD)

A PFD is vital for safe passage on each paddle session, especially if lone paddling. We are in very safe hands with Baltic Lifejackets on board to provide the Personal flotation devices needed for both Brendon and the crew.

GPS & Timing
GPS & Timing

"If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" The same could be said for paddling around mainland Britain with no GPS to track you, GPS devices are needed for safety and confirmation of route is essential for any WR attempt. And we are please to have Geo Tracks providing us with GPS units for tracking both Brendon and the land crew.

UV/Sun Protection
UV/Sun Protection

With The Long Paddle taking place over the summer a big worry for Brendon whilst on the water is about protecting him from the sun and the dangerous UV rays. We are super excited to have Lifejacket Skin Protection supporting us and providing their amazing product range to keep Brendon and the crew safe!

Personal Location Device
Personal Location Device

Now this is a vital piece of kit but something we are all hoping Brendon will not have to use. YAK/Crewsaver have provided Brendon with a personal location device(PLD) that he would active in an emergency if he needed the emergency services to locate him.

First Aid and Safety Signage
First Aid and Safety Signage

Safe Response have provided us with absolutely vital equipment, including first aid kits, reflective stickers for Brendon's board (for night paddling) and light up dashboard signage for the support vans. Safety is our upmost priority as a team so a massive thank you to Safe Response for sorting us out with this equipment.

Safety for the night paddles is a tricky prospect but a huge thank you to Optics Warehouse & Night Vision Warehouse for loaning us two HIK Micro 35mm Thermal Monocular’s to assist the crew in keeping taps on Brendon as he paddles at night.

Spares Marine have water safety at the heart of their company ethos and having these guys onboard to support the teams VHF radio needs is such an important part of Brendon's safety.

Restube
Restube

SUP Buoyancy and PFDs don't just have to be your standard buoyancy aid style and Restube prove just that. Having a PFD that doesn't restrict your shoulders and is less bulking that traditional PFDs gives Brendon a perfect buoyancy solution for those less gnarly days.

Clothing

Cag

Drysuit
Drysuit

For those really horrible wild, windy, wet or cold days a full drysuit is so important. We are please to have Hammond Drysuits supporting Brendon and supplying him with the top quality kit that he needs for those particularly rough days on the water.

Paddling Jacket
Paddling Jacket

On those days where the weather is fairer but not hugely warm a good jacket is so important, Brendon is super pleased to have Showers Pass providing him with a paddling jacket.

Changing Robes
Changing Robes

Changing robes of different kinds have become a staple to lots of water users, not just for changing but to keep us warm before and after activities too. We are stoked to have ChangeRobe supplying Brendon and the support crew with changing robes to keep them warm between paddles and during general beach/van life.

Sleeping Equipment & Accommodation

As this attempt has a dry land crew, Brendon and support will be sleeping in the support vehicles, there is a huge need for quality mobile mattresses/sleeping bags as well as other camping equipment to enhance every minute of sleep.

Power
Power

A big worry for the support crew is power, how can we charge Brendons GPS and safety equipment when he gets off the water and how can we power all we need for living on the road. Power 2Go have been a fantastic support in providing us two power supply units and accessories for the trip.

Camping Equipment
