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:
Clothes: T’s, Boardshorts, lightweight jacket
Boards: as many as you can fit or just a few and plan on renting, buying on craigslist or borrowing
Food: the more snacks the better. Be generous, they are an easy way to make friends and become popular amongst your peers.
iPad: loaded with books and movies.
Tools: fin key, screw driver, Leatherman multitool
Dive gear: at least a max and fins
Body surf stuff: hand plane, mini Boog, inflatable surf mat.
Coffee: cant live without it.
Tooth brush: gotta keep it clean
