The Packing List: Pat Towersey

Punker Pat is most known for his longtime presence in the surf industry (he’s been on the scene for more than two decades) but did you know he’s also a paddler and marathon runner? We got in touch to see what he brought on a recent ride to Catalina. He paddled there, ran a marathon, and paddled back to Southern California – that’s 26.2 miles of running smashed between about 60 miles of paddling. Here’s what he brought to keep himself alive, entertained and moderately clean:
