On March 9, 2017 Chris Bertish of South Africa became the first person to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean on a standup paddleboard (SUP).
The 4,050-mile journey began on December 6th, 2016, when he left Agadir, Morocco.
Chris hit Antigua at 8:32 am on March 9.
He get up real early that morning or paddle through the night?
And while Chris gets credit for being the first to cross the Atlantic on a standup paddleboard, his was unlike any you’ve ever seen.
Let’s cut to the chase.
It was actually a boat.
Chris paddled a boat across the Atlantic while standing up.
Not only that but his journey also raised close to a half a million bucks for South African charities
You’re a bigger man than are we!
