Episode 12: Jonathan Cowen

Jonathan Cowen and Paddling Alone in Tasmania

In Episode #12 of This Ocean Life podcast we speak with Jonathan Cowen, a dedicated surfer and paddle boarder who lives a life of ocean isolation in the wild land of Tasmania where there are very few people in the water (and only 2 known prone paddlers!). Jonathan shares stories about finding passion for the ocean in a land-locked town in England, bringing the second recorded prone paddleboard to Tasmania, and going hypothermic in the Antarctic-influenced wind and water he calls home. If you go to Tasmania and want to paddle or surf, Jonathan is the guy!
