US paddle boarder from Tennessee, Benjamin Schiller Friberg paddles in the open sea of the Straits of Florida, between Cuba and US on Friday. A 35-year-old jazz musician has laid claim to being the first person to cross the treacherous Straits of Florida, separating Cuba and the US, on a stand-up paddleboard. Benjamin Friberg reached the beach at Key West, Florida some 28 hours after he set off from Cuba’s capital Havana with a support team in a catamaran alongside.
