Last winter, the Crathorne Clan did a coast-to-coast trip across South America. 100 years ago Polly Crathorne's great grandfather arrived by steamer in Argentina and made the epic journey travelling by train, foot and horse and cart over the Andes to Chile. Her family followed in his footsteps, kitesurfing anywhere they could along the way.
4560 km driven. 4753 m climbed. More nights under canvas than in beds. More days kiting than not. Atlantic to Pacific? Check!
"Thank you Cabrinha, NP Surf and Muther of All Things - you're pretty cool!" — Polly Crathorne
