Recently, Portuguese reporter Vitor Hugo Alvarenga contacted us to find out more about The Seasteading Institute, as part of a feature for high-profile news outlet TVI24.pt about the seasteading movement. Entitled “Viver no Mar”, the three-piece feature focuses on The Seasteading Institute, on SeaLand, and on the concept of seasteading in general.
Sean Hastings‘ presentation on his experiences with HavenCo and SeaLand is now online:

THE world of extreme sports regularly sees its top athletes travel to some of the most unusual or exotic locations in order to carry out death-defying feats.
But never before have a group of international star skateboarders taken to the high seas as they did recently off the Essex coast.
The daredevils descended on the controversial “micronation” of Sealand, a former wartime fortress located six miles off Harwich.
After being winched onto the weather-beaten outpost, the skaters performed a series of stunts that took them to the very edge of the platform, more than 100ft up in the air.
The article includes a video of the event.
