    Let's go surfing now, Everybody's learning how!!

    Surfer completes 10,407 days on the waves

    A man who vowed to surf off the Californian coast every day for 28 years, has finished 10,407 days later.

    Dale Webster vowed on Leap Day, February 29, 1976, that he'd surf every day until Leap Day fell again on the fifth Sunday of February.

    That meant 28 years of daily surfing until last Sunday - February 29.

    About 40 friends, and writers and photographers from surfing publications, surrounded the 55-year-old as he brought his bright red and white board to shore.

    He entered the record books in January 2003 after hitting the 10,000-day mark. reports the Arizona Republic.

    In order to complete his task, Webster put off marriage for 10 years while his girlfriend, Kaye, now his wife, recorded the daily surfings for posterity. He took low-paying night jobs so his mornings would be free, and he never went on holiday.

    He even surfed on his wedding day and the day his daughter was born.

    Now he needs ear surgery to remove calcium deposits built up by the relentless exposure to water. His eyes are partially covered with scar tissue from too many years of looking into the sun.

    After completing the mammoth task, Webster said: "I'm afraid of not surfing. It's hard to say I'm going to stop or take a vacation. I'd love to, but it's who I am, and to give that up would be really hard."

    Like Dude!!

    I went surfing until you know, like my eyes are gone and I have marine life growing in my ear canals!!

    But you have to admit, any self respecting woman would have bailed after the first 100 days......


    I am going to breath every day until leap year falls on February 29..

    Cowabunga!

    Oh boy, is that the kind of wildlife I get to meet when I come down in July????

    Hang ten, dude!!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!
