Jared Munch left Duluth travelling the coast of Lake Superior in early June.

His destination, Duluth.

Munch paddled nearly 1400 miles around the perimeter of Lake Superior in just 49 days. 

He arrived back in Duluth; on Wednesday night, to a heroes welcome complete with a champagne shower.

Munch said that the most taxing part of the journey was the mental anxiety he experienced when weather kept him off the lake for days at a time.

The weather was not completely unkind to Munch, he had planned for the trip to take 2 1/2 months, but experienced enough fair weather to finish nearly a month ahead of schedule. 

Munch hopes that others might take up the sport of stand up paddle boarding after seeing what he’s accomplished.
