9000 people climbed Mount Everest...

750 people rowed the oceans...

1 person got 4 world records for Iceland and became the first person to:

simultaneously hold overall Atlantic and Indian Ocean speed world records

 

Crossing of the Atlantic Ocean 2011:

Enjoyable, very high waves, sea creatures as friendly companions, epic storms and good laughs....
and by the way two world records broken.

Endless roller coaster, passing by the sunken Atlantis, amazing hallucinations due to sleep deprivation and exhaustion....
and, by the way, the fastest ocean crossing in the history of this planet.

 

Crossing of the Indian Ocean 2014:

3 failed attempts yet never giving up, befriending a pack of sharks, row 4 or even in 3 instead of 8 in 2 tones boat … and, by the way,
crossed this ocean fast enough and got 2 more world records.

Broke 2 oars rowing in the storm, 2 more during emergency action, hit a giant whale...and, by the way, became
the first person to simultaneously hold overall Atlantic and Indian ocean speed records.

 

Pacific Ocean crossing in 2016:
