Missouri River, USA

1004 mile SUP


On August 10th 2012 I set off from Chamberlain, South Dakota paddling 1004 miles downstream to St Louis, Missouri, completing the longest stand up paddleboard journey by any female.


The expedition began in the lakes where we faced both searingly hot days gliding along still, glassy waters, and days spent battling unforgiving headwinds and sheltering away from powerful electrical storms that clawed away at our patience. After the lakes came the wild and brilliantly unpredictable fast flowing waters of the Missouri River. Camping along the sand banks by night, and passing through both remote wilderness and industrial citiescapes by day, this journey brought extraordinary stories from the people who live and work alongside the mighty river.

August – September 2012
