Days of Opportunity – A SUP Adventure around Menorca

In April of 2018 SUPboarder's Will Rogers set off with some friends attempting to circumnavigate Menorca, an island in the mediterranean sea. Will tells the story of this fantastic trip in his documentary 'Days of Opportunity', reflecting on why he's so addicted to the challenges of SUP touring & exploring. Its certainly worth finding time to watch how this challenging trip unfolded, so sit back, grab a beer and get inspired for adventure!

Will’s documentary follows him and his 3 friends, Rach Ince, Jen Manning and Ben Sawyer as they make an attempt to circumnavigate Menorca by SUP. This documentary gives us an insight into the challenges the team faced and how they overcame them, and helps us understand why adventure can be so good for us physically and mentally.

Here’s what Will had to say:
