The first ever solo, open ocean, SUP trans-Atlantic crossing

An undertaking so unique, so out-of-the-box, and of such an immense feat that most would believe it to be… Impossible!

About the project

Chris began the first ever, solo, SUP Trans-Atlantic Crossing on December 6, 2016. 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, the voyage has taken Chris past the Canary Islands, and he is now well into crossing the Atlantic Ocean, moving towards the Caribbean Leeward Island of Antigua, and if the weather permits, he hopes to end the journey in Florida. Chris will battle the currents, weather, creatures of the deep, fatigue, exhaustion and the unknown.
