Even though he’s an accomplished multi-discipline waterman, you probably most recognise Chris Bertish’ name from his Big Wave Surfing achievements – especially his win at Mavericks Big Wave International in 2010. If there’s any Big Wave competition to win, this is IT. Chris is still surfing – he was 6th at Mavericks in March 2013 and has been invited back for the 2014 competition.Chris has been into SUP for a few years already. A few months ago he competed at the ‘Stand Up Paddle World Championships’ in Peru – his second year at the World Champs. He placed 7th in the Wave Riding competition.
In this talk Chris speaks about his SUP adventures in the UK in August 2013 where he travelled the Thames River from source-to-sea AND set a new SUP record for crossing the English Channel.
