NAWILIWILI, Hawaii (AP) -- A Maui man has completed the first-ever 300-mile crossing from the Big Island to Kauai aboard a stand-up paddleboard.

Bart de Zwart arrived at Kalapaki Beach on Kauai Sunday night.

He spent five days and nights on a 14-foot paddleboard.

He tells the Garden Island that paddling was easy but being alone, eating and sleeping were difficult.

The trip required more than 215,000 paddle-strokes.
