Robert Norman Sets SUP World Record
Florida resident Robert Norman set the record for most miles paddled in a 24-hour period on February 11, 2017. Norman, who has only been paddleboarding since 2014, broke the previous record by 12 miles with a total of 111.8 miles.
In addition to his SUP training, Norman is an assistant at a physical therapy center and teaches Tai-Chi and other fitness classes. After getting a SUP board in August 2014, Norman signed up for his first race, fell in love with it and started training for races after that.
Norman plans to continue training and if no one goes after his record, he may come back to beat it himself.
