Did you know that Kyle Mais, General Manager, regularly commutes to Jamaica Inn via paddleboard? It’s not a lie. Kyle is extremely committed to reducing his carbon footprint, so with his laptop and cellphone on his back, he often paddleboards to work. His paddleboard is even lightweight being made from bamboo.

“What a great way to get to work and what a great option, particularly, these days when societies and civilisation have resulted in the traffic jams and CO2 emissions,” says Kyle.

When he uses his car, it can take up to 15 minutes depending on the traffic, and when he paddles or swims, it takes between 15 and 20 minutes based on the wind pattern and how rough the sea is, he told The Sunday Gleaner.

    Well Kyle, I’m really impressed but tell me is your bag waterproof just in case of a tumble what would happen to your laptop? But then I suppose you are so confident that won’t happen!
    Well done you.

    That is awesome Kyle! I try to do my best too, by using public transportation instead of driving to work, but I can’t even begin to compare my subway ride with your trip!!! What a great way to start the day.
