It's a go....green light to the SupCrossing and the epic adventure begins...the project to Sup the Atlantic, while positively changing the lives of millions of children in Africa and South Africa

Chris is attempting the first ever, solo, SUP Trans-Atlantic Crossing. It will consist of paddling a marathon every day for 120 days, over 4500 miles (7500 km) to show the world what’s possible, one stroke at a time.

Beginning on the northwest coast of Africa in Morocco, Chris will begin the voyage to the Canary Islands, across the Atlantic Ocean, towards the Caribbean leeward Island of Antigua, before finally ending the journey in Miami, Florida. Chris will battle the currents, weather, creatures of the deep, fatigue, exhaustion and the unknown.

For the past 5 years, he has devoted every spare moment to the planning every detail of this massive project. Over the last few months, he has assembled an amazing team to support this once in a lifetime adventure.
