Chris Bertish back in Cape Town


South African big wave surfer Chris Bertish is now the first person to cross the Atlantic Ocean on a stand-up paddle board.

He arrived back in Cape Town on Monday after being at sea for 93 days.

He covered more than 6,000 kilometers, raising over R5 million for charity.

“I sat there and watched these little kids get their faces put back together. I tell you what, every time I think about it, tears well up in my eyes. That is the passion and emotion that drives you through any obstacle or challenge that gets in your way.”
