Rob Rojas Is A Bloody Legend: Paddles 24 Hours Straight For Charity
A few days ago Rob Rojas did what not many of us will ever do: Paddled for 24 hours non-stop.
The long-time stalwart of the SoCal SUP scene completed the overnight odyssey early Sunday morning in Dana Point, accompanied by his charger of a son, Conrad, and a bunch of supporters.
Paddling for 24 hours straight is a pretty impressive achievement, however Rob was doing it not for himself but for charity, raising funds for Ocean Of Hope (you can still donate here to his fundraising efforts).
Rob started his odyssey early Saturday, around the same time hundreds of paddlers were gearing up for the Hal Rosoff Classic in Newport. From there he headed out into the ocean and all the way down towards Dana Point, accompanied by a kid who apparently shares his dad’s lack of any logical pain barrier.
The voyage finished 24 hours later at Dana Point’s Baby Beach.
Check out the great edit from Riviera Paddlesurf (where Rob is a star team rider) to see how it all went down.
