Episode 55 Interview with the Higgenbotham Brothers – Paddle Boarding the West Coast of the U.S.

Today we kick off a month of adventure interviews; stories with adventurers about their feats and stories.

Interview with the Higgenbotham brothers (twins)

The Higgenbotham twins are lifeguards from Southern California, endurance athletes, and surfers. Deciding, on a handshake, to undertake the adventure of a lifetime, the two brothers set out to prone paddleboard, using only their hands to propel them, from Alaska to Mexico, down the entire West coast of the United States – 2200 miles, in 2016. A feat never before done, the two experienced, cold, deprivation, broken boards, lost equipment, storms, the kindness of strangers, and moments where they made life affirming decisions. Join me for the live interview with the Higgenbothams after their completion of their trek, and to hear some of their stories.

Stories are our lives in language. Welcome to the Love Your Story podcast. I’m Lori Lee, and I’m excited for our future together of telling stories, evaluating our own stories, and lifting ourselves and others to greater places because of our control over our stories. This podcast is about empowerment and giving you, the listener, ideas to work with in making your stories work for you. Story power serves you best when you know how to use it.

For more information on the Higgenbothams and this trek you can check out their website:

Otherwise, they say the best place to find them is “on the water.”

About the author, Lori

Author of four books and over 100 magazine and newspaper articles, Lori found a fascination with the personal narrative during her master's degree research in Folklore at Utah State University. Coming to understand the nuance and power of story, the automatic but unrecognized uses, the cultural curtains that story pulls back for us to peak behind, she let her excitement spill over into her own journey of personal empowerment and the excitement of sharing it all with others.
