Justin Riney is leading Expedition Florida 500, exploring Florida’s coastline, waterways, and aquatic ecosystem to bring awareness to cleaning up the waterways. Greet him as he arrives in West Palm Beach by paddle board on Thursday, May 23, at 5:30 PM. Cheer Justin on at the Clematis by Night stage as he is recognized by the City of West Palm Beach.
2013 is Florida’s 500th anniversary since Ponce de Leon landed on Florida’s coastline in 1513; in celebration of this momentous occasion, Mother Ocean has partnered with Viva Florida 500, the Florida Department of State, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Quiksilver Waterman Collection, Tahoe SUP, and various others to embark on a yearlong journey combining the best of exploration, adventure, stewardship, science, and sport into a package that will include the full gamut of the waterman’s lifestyle.
