SAAHK is proud to be hosting South African waterman, speaker, adventurer, best-selling author and filmmaker Chris Bertish in Hong Kong on Friday, 18 May. Chris has broken many world records; but last year he shattered all perceptions of what is possible. In March 2017 Chris successfully accomplished something that no other human has ever come close to achieving. He became the first person ever to cross the Atlantic Ocean, alone and unsupported, on a stand up paddle board. 7500 km. 93 days. One incredible story. Come and listen to Chris Bertish share his incredible adventure and – ‘Limitless! – The SUP Crossing Story’.

“Make the change. Be the change. Leave a positive impact on others and the world around you.” – Chris Bertish
As part of the Nelson Mandela Centenary 2018 and the Global South Africans initiative, SAAHK is honoured to host such an inspiring and passionate South African figure in Hong Kong. By conquering the Atlantic crossing challenge, Chris has shown the world that everyone has the power to overcome the impossible. His philosophy is one of positive change – starting with themselves, people can make a difference to others and the environment. This philosophy honours the legacy of Nelson Mandela and embodies Madiba’s views on changing the world – “we can change the world and make it a better place. It is in your hands to make a difference.”
By booking a ticket to this talk, guests will automatically be giving back to community projects as a percentage of the revenue generated by the talk is donated to various charity initiatives and ROAK (Random Acts of Kindness) projects. Chris is also an ambassador for the following initiatives – the Thor Heyerdahl Climate Change Park, 2 Oceans Aquarium, Operation Smile, Signature of Hope and Lykke Blue & Tree Coin, while investing in positive change by becoming 1% for the Planet Certified, B Corp Certified and Carbon Net positive, to name a few.
