All In, is the latest book from internationally renowned big wave surfer, ocean adventurer, multiple Guinness World Record holder, speaker and author, Chris Bertish, telling his harrowing tale of his 2017, 7500km solo SUP TransAtlantic Crossing from Morocco, Africa to Antigua in the Caribbean.

“The book tells the story of my 3months alone at sea and some of the gnarly adventures I went through to do what most people told me was completely impossible,” says Chris Bertish. “Some of the highlights include being targeted by a great white shark, towed by a giant sea squid, capsizing multiple times and surfing down 10-meter waves as challenging as anything I have faced in any Mavericks Big Wave Surfing Championships!”

Too many times, Bertish, found himself hanging on the edge of his modified SUP for dear life. He also become one with the elements, and ultimately succeeded in doing something everyone said was simply impossible.
