What seemed like a harmless enough spider bite on his knee turned into a full-blown medical emergency and essential repatriation for treatment - and the premature end to the trip of a lifetime. Kirk Hollis and Seth Warren were still able to explore a ghost town from the slave trade era, kiteboard remote sandbars of the Indian Ocean, downwind SUP across miles of turquoise ocean all before the emergency evacuation from Matemo Island, Mozambique! Still, the spider bite caused fevers, septicemia and untold pain and took a dozen injections, countless antibiotics, multiple doctors and two months of recovery, but mostly it created an exciting (if painful) ending to an amazing trip. Sometimes the best adventures don't always turn out as expected, but that just makes planning for the next one that much more fun.

In July 2013, Seth Warren and Kirk Hollis embarked on the KUZI Project – a 500-mile self-supported adventure up the coast of East Africa. Fueled by the Kuzi trade wind that pushes wind and swell across the Indian Ocean, the team attempted to standup paddle and kite board between Pemba, Mozambique and Zanzibar, Tanzania, an area full of islands and remote, pristine coastal areas. What was meant to be a 6 week, 500-mile and 50+ island cruise through paradise, turned in to an epic that taught these two old friends the true meaning of 'adventure.' Be sure to follow along as the story of the KUZI Project unfolds, with new episodes every Tuesday on EpicTV.
