Chris Bertish just became the first person to cross the Atlantic Ocean on a standup paddleboard unassisted. During the 93 day journey, he traveled 4,500 nautical miles from Morocco to Antigua and encountered everything from equipment troubles to sharks.
Through his trip, he raised $412,000 for charity. He teamed up with Signature of Hope Trust, the Lunchbox Foundation and Operation Smile. The money will build at least 5 schools in South Africa, provide monthly dividends to feed and educate thousands of children, and pay for surgeons to carry out cleft lip and palate operations.
