The SUP Crossing

Chris Bertish needs little introduction, he won the coveted Mavericks international big wave surfing competition in the biggest paddle in waves in competitive history in 2010.  He recently completed The SUP Crossing - the first solo, unassisted transatlantic crossing on a stand-up paddle board, setting and breaking a number of world records in the process.

Chris began this mammoth undertaking, on 6 December 2016 from the mainland of Agadir, Morocco, travelling south-westerly past the Canary Islands for 93 days until he reached the shores of English Harbour in Antigua.

The main goal of The SUP Crossing is to leave a sustainable legacy by raising funds for Signature of Hope Trust, The Lunchbox Fund and Operation Smile South Africa and to make the entire project a completely self-sustainable charity initiative, that will have a lasting legacy for generations to follow.

It is an honour to be the Official Title Sponsor.

“The main aim of this project is to push the limits of what's possible for the sport and for what the human spirit can endure, while inspiring others to believe in themselves and what's truly possible, while changing the lives of millions of less fortunate children in Africa and South Africa, with the money we raise through this incredible project.”

“We are extremely proud of what Chris has achieved.  It has been remarkable for us at Carrick Wealth to watch his incredible journey. He has shown incredible mental fortitude and immense tenacity in the face of adverse weather conditions,  and we are excited to see him achieve even greater things on his return to South Africa. Whether at sea or in everyday life he completely lives by his motto: Nothing is impossible!”

explains Craig Featherby, Chief Executive Officer at Carrick Wealth.
