Join us as we make a feature-length documentary film about the inspirational journey of an athlete who is ocean driven and has a great story to tell.
This is the first film ever made about Chris Bertish- revolutionary waterman, humble warrior, pioneer, and most recent winner at Mavericks, the biggest paddle-in, big wave-surfing competition in the world, among other great big wave contests. As one of South Africa’s highest-profile big-wave surfers and watermen, Bertish is constantly pushing the envelope by pitting himself against tons of life-threatening water, all the while glowing with power and success. As the first person to paddle into Jaws and surf some of the largest waves in the world—waves that no one else dares to charge—he takes risks that others view as virtually suicidal. His mission: to embrace courage and spirit, to follow his dreams, to master his skills, channel his fears, and redefine what's possible. Bertish is known for paddling into and surfing the biggest waves in the world, he also pushes the limits while exploring the ocean thru sailing and stand up paddleboarding (SUP). His goal in life is to not only challenge himself and to follow his dreams, but to motivate others to do more with their lives.
