An American has become the first person to paddle-board between Cuba and the US, accomplishing the 111-mile (179km) voyage in 28 hours.
Musician Ben Friberg, from Tennessee, was accompanied by a support boat - his father among the crew - providing navigational advice and nutrition.
He stood for most of the trip from the Hemingway marina, near the Cuban capital Havana, to Key West, Florida.
