In their latest podcast from their kayak, Tasman kayakers,  Justin Jones admits he and James Castrission had suddenly realised their stupidity in purely focusing on making landfall.

They have no means to get themselves home, he says.

"It's a funny thought - but I don't think we're going to be able to paddle back home again."

The best situation would be if one of the trans-Tasman airlines picked up the tab, he said.

"Please do it for the sake of my mum. I don't think they could handle the paddle back," Jones joked.
