Maurice Lacroix Bering Strait Expedition

 

Under the motto of “Follow Your Convictions,” a team of adventurers made the journey to Wales, Alaska in late July with the goal of crossing the Bering Strait by kiteboard. This marked the beginning of the Maurice Lacroix Bering Strait Expedition, a journey on which extreme athletes Geza Scholtz and Troy Henkels are attempting to set three world records:

• The first crossing of the Bering Strait by kiteboard.
• The first crossing from America to Asia by kiteboard.
• The first crossing of the International Date Line by kiteboard.

The Maurice Lacroix Bering Strait Expedition not only demands outstanding athletic performance, but also takes the two adventurers on a voyage into uncharted territory where they face both organizational and cultural challenges.

“Every day, a new experience is waiting for us. Yesterday we were quite astonished when a storm started to rage outside. We never saw such a thunderstorm before. The fact that it is light even at midnight also still startles us after 10 days,” says Geza Scholtz, the Swiss kite boarder on the “Maurice Lacroix Bering Strait Expedition”.
