Hats off to this South African inspiration Chris Bertish, who's now left for his journey out at sea for The Sup Crossing
After six months of preparation and a few weeks in Morocco, setting up and waiting for the right weather window, Chris Bertish has paddled his modified SUP, the ImpiFish, out into the Atlantic, with the intention of making landfall on the other side of the pond, in about 3 months or so.
The absolute nutter South African big wave surfer, waterman, multiple world record holder, adventurer, motivational speaker and all round inspirational dude is aiming to be the first human to cross the Atlantic on a SUP unassisted, and in so doing raise a huge pile of cash for a bunch of very worthy causes and basically redefining what’s possible. Here at the Zag it’s not often that we salute a man on an SUP, but this is simply incredible. You can track Chris’ progress and learn more about the project on his website www.chrisbertish.com.
