“Nothing is Impossible, unless you believe it to be…” Chris Bertish likes to say that he’s just a normal guy. A regular Joe facing the same life struggles as you and I. The difference is Chris Bertish is willing to throw himself over the ledge of an ocean wave the size of a four story building, paddle unsupported for seven days up treacherous coastlines alone or paddle across the Atlantic on a SUP battling the elements. He’s won the Maverick’s Big Wave International surfing event in the biggest and heaviest waves ever recorded in the history of the sport and has a string of other notable world firsts under his belt.>

Along the way Chris has mastered the gift of talking an amazingly inspirational story. And so has become both a global Motivational Keynote and TEDx guest speaker, who travels the world inspiring audiences to believe, that they too, can achieve great things, with the right self-belief, attitude and focus. It’s just a matter of choice.Chris has a motto that captures his attitude. “Dream it, see it, believe it, achieve it.” It’s that simple, if you work hard at it, stay focused, determined, resilient and never give up, you can achieve anything.

“It was a pleasure and privilege to have such a passionate and motivated individual share with us his deepest understandings, his wildest experiences and to truly captivate us with the essence of, ‘impossible is nothing’.” Mike Markovina, Moving Sushi and TEDxSeaPoint.

“You were everything we could have asked for and more! The response was overwhelming…You are a special Human Being!” Steve Harden-Southern Wines GM, California, USA
