Big Wave Surfing Mavericks Champion, Stand Up Paddle Boarding Guinness World Record Holder, Best Selling Author, and Ocean Pioneer

Inspiring your greatest potential is my purpose.

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.

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.

Current work

Chris 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.

Previous experience

Achievements: 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.

Your talk was simply incredible and the staff are still buzzing today and amped to read your book. There is a type of crazy that challenges the status quo and what we perceive to be possible. Chris Bertish has this in bucketloads and inspires people to be a better version of themselves. Huge appreciation and respect! DigiCape South Africa
