Levi’s pushing boundaries

Levi Mayes, 15.

Levi Mayes, 15, from Fish Hoek, took part in his first Robben Island Freedom Paddle on Tuesday April 27.

He completed the gruelling 29km paddle around the island on a prone paddle board, which is similar to a Mali board used for lifesaving . Paddlers can go either way depending on conditions This time the call was to go anti-clockwise . He managed to keep up with the top two paddlers until the last 150 metres and came in second as the first two tied in first place.
