Overview

After South African Surfer Chris Bertish wins the big wave surfing title at Mavericks, he announces that his next conquest will be to become the first person to stand up paddleboard across the Atlantic, from Africa to North America, solo and unsupported. Alone, save for 95 days worth of food, a solar-powered desalinator to turn saltwater into drinking water, and three cameras, Bertish sets off from Morocco to begin his journey. Bertish has to battle through storms, equipment failures, shark encounters, injuries, leaks, loneliness, and coming to grips with his fathers death, as he paddles solo across the Atlantic and tests what is truly possible. Buoyed with an infectious enthusiasm and a mantra of “one stroke at a time”, Chris Bertish blazes his own trail across the empty Atlantic to make his father proud.
