December 2017, from the side of a marina in a small town in one of Spain’s Canary Islands, Damian shoved Darien, his 7m long, 2m wide ocean rowing boat away, into the unknown. The goal to traverse 5000km of ferocious Atlantic ocean, solo and unsupported. Over the following 63 days he would endure storms, capsizes, Christmas & New Years Day, crippling sea sores & pressure sores, total steering system failure, a close call with a 300m cargo ship, making eye contact with a whale and much more on the incredible adventure few ever get to experience.

Mount Everest standing at 8848 m, is the highest mountain on Earth. In 2021, after one postponement, 3 years of preparations and a whirlwind to make the plane after the birth of his first child, Damian had the privilege to attempt to climb to the top of the world. Season 2 is a story of unexpected challenges, determination and grit told with confronting honesty, inspiring vulnerability and compelling authenticity.

Damian is back, this time with his life long friend Fergus Farrell as they attempt to break world record as they row from New York to their home town of Galway.
