HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A man is getting ready to paddle a kayak from San Francisco to Hawaii.

According to News Reports, Wave Vidmar was supposed to embark on his journey on Sunday, but was delayed due to a stomach issue.

The 48 year old says his greatest worry is running into tsunami debris.

Vidmar expects the 3,100 mile trip to take between 45 and 65 days.

The California-to-Hawaii trip was completed only once before by a solo kayaker.

Ed Gillet successfully completed the trek from Monterey Bay to Maui back in 1997.
