Geoff’s Wilson's life changed forever on Boxing Day 2004. Within days of the Banda Aceh earthquake and tsunami, he was working on the ground as a relief team translator. The death and destruction was a huge wake-up call for Geoff and what he has achieved since is nothing short of inspiring. From near death escapes and grand desert journeys to extreme Antarctic expeditions, Geoff now holds six world records;

  1. Longest solo, unsupported Polar Journey in Human History
  2. First summit of Dome Argus, solo and unsupported
  3. Fastest solo, unsupported crossing of Antarctica
  4. Fastest unsupported crossing of Greenland, South to North
  5. First to cross the Torres Strait by kiteboard
  6. First and only wind-assisted crossing of the Sahara Desert
