Big Wave surfer and motivational speaker Chris Bertish talks to us about his book.
Chris Bertish likes to say that he’s just a normal guy. A Regular Joe facing the same life struggles as you and I. The difference with Chris is that he is willing to throw himself over the ledge of an ocean wave the size of a four-storey building, paddle unsupported for seven days up treacherous coastlines, alone and in extreme winds while battling the elements, and paddle across the Atlantic on his Stand Up Paddleboard
Along the way Chris has learnt some very hard lessons, overcome many severe obstacles and achieved success repeatedly, against all odds, often in life-threatening conditions.
Chris applies all these trials, tribulations and joys into an inspiring and moving story. He travels all over the world inspiring audiences to believe that they too can achieve great things with the right Self-belief, Attitude and Focus. It’s just a matter of choice. In addition to Chris’s global keynote addresses, he is also a past TEDx and FEAT guest speaker.
Chris has a motto that captures his attitude to both overcoming struggle and achievement. “Dream it, See it, Believe it, Achieve it.”
