Sea Pathways - Chadd Konig Paddling with Intention

The coastline between Santa Cruz and Santa Barbara is home to some of the most magical and raw landscapes, sea life and natural beauty that California has to offer. Team CLIF Bar and Santa Barbara-based surfer/environmentalist Chadd Konig traveled down the coast on a "prone/knee paddle board" for approximately 250 miles. Many regions of this coastline are only accessible by water, and Chadd had the incredible opportunity to explore them along this journey.

Chadd's Intention: Paddle the Central California coast to explore, enjoy and document the beauty of its coastline. Additionally, Chadd paddled to raise awareness and direct people's attention to petitions and legislation that will aim to stop "Fracking" in California.

In addition to Chadd's sponsors (CLIF Bar, Billabong and Matole Valley Naturals), Chadd has teamed up with the Environmental Defense Center of Santa Barbara to address this issue.

Check out their webpage for more information on "Fracking."
