For this week’s Throwback Thursday we honour the courageous and crazy Chris Bertish. In this article (published in Volume 25 Issue 4 of Zigzag magazine) Chris chats with the now Zigzag publisher, Andy Davis, after having completed his goal to surf the biggest waves around: Todos Santos, Mavericks, Waimea, Teahupo’o and Jaws.
