Herman Chalupsky claims that the real reason he aims to finish first at any race is to ensure that there's no one ahead of him in line at the pub.

[Editor: This feels weird - I knew nothing about this article until a few minutes ago - but it's a nice surprise! Thanks Al!]

Since you are reading this article on, it is very likely you will come across the name 'Rob Mousley'. Rob is the joint founder of and is a prolific writer and avid surf-skier. In the 3 years of's existence, Rob has published over 600 articles which have generated nearly 5 million pageviews from readers all over the world.

Sunday 18th May is not only the day of surf-skiing's most famous race, the Molokai Crossing, but, by some huge co-incidence, it is also Rob's 45th birthday. Rob is currently in Hawaii and will be realising a dream of taking on the winds and ocean swells to make the 56km crossing from Molokai to Oahu. In the last few weeks Rob has written a number of articles profiling the world's top surfski paddlers, and I thought it would be a good idea to profile Rob himself!
