Sometimes you just have to stand back and admire other peoples determination to do stuff you just would never even try to do. In that vain I give you Billy Laity who set a new World record by surfing for 26 hours straight!
He surpassed the previous record of 24 hours despite facing gusting winds of between 20 and 40 mph, water temps of the low 60′s, air temps in the 40′s and a torrential downpour just for good measure.
Or as Billy saw it “Some of those in our crew were somewhat sketching on this idea due to a bevy of pretty valid reasons,” Billy noted, “which included, but were not limited to, hypothermia, hydropsychosis, severe and unbearable crampage, the sudden loss of luxuries often taken for granted, such as being able, upon the setting of the sun, to take in a warm meal with the missus from the comfort of one’s humble abode.”
