The KUZI Project – A 500-mile Kite-SUP Adventure
In July 2013, Seth Warren and Kirk Hollis embarked on the KUZI Project – a 500-mile self-supported adventure up the coast of East Africa. Fueled by the Kuzi trade wind that pushes wind and swell across the Indian Ocean, the team attempted to standup paddle and kite board between Pemba, Mozambique and Zanzibar, Tanzania, an area full of islands and remote, pristine coastal areas.
What was meant to be a 6 week, 500-mile and 50+ island cruise through paradise, turned in to an epic that taught these two old friends the true meaning of ‘adventure.’
Gear was loaded. Boards were shipped. Plane tickets purchased. But what happens when you’re faced with the adventure of a lifetime, and something doesn’t feel quite right?
“Hair-Fire, Knee Surgery and Drunk SUP Promises” is the first episode. Be sure to check it out! And stay tuned for more episodes from this East African downwind adventure.
