Chris Bertish is a Big Wave Surfing Mavericks champion; Stand Up
Paddle Boarding Guinness World Record Holder and Ocean Pioneer.
He recently redefined the concept of Extreme Adventure by becoming
the first person ever to Stand Up Paddle across any ocean. Defying
all odds, Chris paddled 7500km - solo, unsupported and unassisted
- for 93 days, across the Atlantic Ocean from Morocco, Africa to
Antigua in the Caribbean. This is a truly unparalleled global feat!
By conquering this challenge, Chris showed the world that we all
have the power to overcome the impossible. His philosophy is one of
positive change – starting with ourselves; we can make a difference
to others and the environment. This is the message Chris shares in all
his talks and public appearances.
From Chris’s motivational and Inspirational speaking messages,
to the charities he supports – it’s all focused around making the
impossible, possible. In fact, everything we do at Chris Bertish-
Impossible (CBI) is aimed at inspiring people to be at their best and
be the change they want to see in the world.

In everything he does - from breaking world records in
big wave surfing to Stand Up Paddleboarding and other
water based disciplines - Chris Bertish shifts boundaries
and shatters perceptions of what’s possible.
His mantra - Dream It. See it. Believe It. Achieve It -
has led Chris to redefine his approach to success - not
only across multiple sports, but also as a respected
Author, Filmmaker and Businessman.
In March 2017, Chris completed his most daring
challenge yet by becoming the first person to
singlehandedly cross the entire Atlantic Ocean (over
7500km) on a Stand Up Paddleboard over 93 days.
In doing so, Chris dared to achieve what most perceive
to be impossible.
Now he is launching his new speaking series on the SUP
Crossing, starting in South Africa and touring abroad.
Known to inspire, educate and motivate audiences by
sharing his captivating experiences, Chris delivers a
spellbinding and captivating narrative complimented by
a powerful audiovisual presentation that will blow your
audience away.
Engaging Chris to address your organisation is a worthwhile
investment, as your team members will be inspired to adopt
a “can do” attitude and implement the tools and skills he
teaches through his powerful storytelling. Chris is also able
to personalise any talk to reflect your company values,
mission or a particular message.
When you book Chris, you will automatically be giving
back to community projects, as percentage of the
revenue generated by his global speaking engagements
is donated through his various charity initiatives and his
RAOK (Random Acts of Kindness) Projects.

"Everyone is just raving about your talk. Your story
is truly outstanding and is told with humility, insight
and humour, which is woven into a spellbinding
narrative. As an inspiring and motivational talk,
I cannot fault it!”
PAUL BOYNTON - Alternative Investments Manager, Old Mutual Investment Group
