Trans-Pacific solo sailor goes for a paddle in the middle of the ocean.

One would think having a Starlink satellite internet connection would make trans-Pacific sailors safer but you’re probably not factoring in the seamen with TikTok accounts. This dude was stuck in the doldrums (nautical term for windless belt around the Earth near the equator) and he decided to conquer the boredom by going for stand up paddle that took him far away from his vessel. While going for a paddle in dead calm seas may seem like a safe activity, there are a million and one ways this could have gone wrong and this video would have never made it to the social media platform. Friendly advice to the aspiring influencers out there, risking your life for views in never a good idea.
