silly slogan of moto. but for 12 years zero, de ramo followed that silly motto and learned what it took to become an expert kayaker. he will attempt to add a new record to his resume kayaking 2400 nautical miles through the pacific to hawaii alone. are you crazy? well, it's a text a little bit of uh, craziness. i guess i wouldn't call it craziness. i think it's passion is a passion and understanding my myself and my limits and i'm pushing my own batteries, but i think i could do that with a specialized kayaks. cyril says he's doing this because he sees it as an opportunity to live life to the fullest. some last minute packing risky, some final goodbye signal, and some kind of you only live once attitude that is becoming an. inspiration to his fellow kayakers. yeah, i mean, it's really uncharted territory for what he's doing, you know, there's people who have done it in a rowboat. we did it in a
6:47 pm
rowboat. but what he's doing in a kayak is a is a totally different level. melissa just after five this morning, cyril takes off from under the golden gate bridge. he'll be in open water for about 70 days, hoping to complete a journey never before taken on kayak, and i think i'm gonna learn so much in two months. i don't know what but feeling the oneness of the ocean on and, uh it's gonna be a blast. and you can follow along with this journey hour by hour. there's a live tracker on the kayak, and it'll give you updates on a website. there's a link to that on our website ktvu .com in marin county. i'm james flores ktvu, fox two news. well history is being made on mount everest. 44 year old jang hung became the very first blind asian climber to reach the top of mount everest. he becomes only the third blind climber ever to reach the world's highest peaks. he
6:48 pm
trained for five years for this moment, carrying £66 of bag £66 bags up the staircase of the hospital where he works. he says he still hopes to climb the highest peak on all. seven continents. incredible, all right, and these are the highest from today. they were toasted. they've come down quite a bit in the last few hours. we're getting a little bit of a sea breeze, especially out towards hayward, oakland. those numbers have really come down. it's still hot as heck inland, though, with numbers in the inland valleys well, over 100 degrees, you can kind of see the atmosphere. you see. let's think this so there's the high pressure in the air, sinking and warming but see that layer in here. that's that kind of smog, hazy kind of layer. that's that. spare the air alert that we had today was spare the air date. tomorrow should not be. we're going to see less of that sinking air and more of an onshore flow with better mixing, and there is the onshore flow right there. just like the arrow. i need to get the wind speeds, but the arrows represent wind going from ocean to land so on shore
6:49 pm
from the ocean to the land, that's what an onshore wind is. and as we go through tomorrow temperatures which will be significantly cooler than two they will seem really comfortable. these air the current temperatures, congress still still 94, but look at berkeley and oakland upper sixties so temperatures that's the sea breeze. so that's why you see, and we all show you in a few weeks or months. i'll show you the same map. we'll see reds and yellows all the way to the coast and we'll see it for more than a couple of days, so we're getting a kind of a break from this. this heat. it's not a heat wave because one day but we're getting a nice little break from it, and that is important. considering the fire danger that you get into when you get multiple days of heat, so it's warmer than yesterday, 10 degrees warmer and hayward and then that big ridge of high pressure going up over the top, and we're gonna get bumped by a little low, and that's why we cool off tomorrow. so it's gonna be nice state of melissa in the nice thing is, this is a one and done heat event, but we also
