Chris Bertish releases “Limitless! The SUP Crossing” on Unlocking Your Greatest Potential

Global Partner

Chris Bertish began his 4050 nautical mile journey, crossing the Atlantic Ocean solo and completely unassisted on a stand up paddle board in December 2016. Most of us thought he’d never make it. In fact, 99% of the human population said that it was ‘Impossible’.

Limitless! The SUP Crossing:  Chris Bertish as Motivational Speaker

But then, day after day, Chris forged a new perspective in our collective consciousness. We witnessed as he weathered storm after storm, heaving seas, broken equipment and navigational dysfunctions and yet … he kept going.

His mindset was undeterred. His focus unstoppable. Somewhere after he had passed under the Canary Islands and headed out to sea, straight through the heart of the Atlantic Ocean, one by one, we began to believe. Chris Bertish was going to make the impossible happen.

To inquire about Chris’ speaking engagements:

In “Limitless! The SUP Crossing“, Chris dives into what it takes to achieve massive success and goals that others might deem impossible. This inspirational talk, created for corporate events, universities and schools, contains rich insight into building a better, stronger, more positive mindset in order to overcome adversity. His presence and intensity will capture you.

The talk dives into who Chris Bertish is and what he’s overcome in order to achieve his goals (which includes winning the Maverick’s 2010 Big Wave Contest after he almost drowned in the first round).

“Limitless! The SUP Crossing” is a glimpse into what happens when we put everything on the line and decide to go the distance. Chris urges his audiences to achieve the impossible through focus, rewiring our personal mindset for massive success and discovering our deeper ‘WHY’ or purpose here on the planet.  His ultimate goal: that we all become better humans.

It is the story of immense grit, passion and courage.  As Chris says, it is the story of “the hero in every one of us.”

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
