South African surfer, Josh Enslin has set his eyes on a very unusual Guinness World Record and is hoping to break the record for for the longest ever surf session. Josh has announced plans to attempt the record in November 2015, when he will be aiming to surf for 30 hours!
The current record was set in August 2014 when the American surfer Ben Shaw racked up an impressive surf session lasting 29 hours and 27 minutes. Now, although I love surfing and am always keen to maximise my water time, the thought of a 30 hour surf, gives me noodle arms just thinking about it. As well as just trying to stay awake and energised for the record attempt, Josh will also have to contend with the cold waters around South Africa and the possibility of sharks trying to crash the party.
Josh will be aiming to set the record at Pollock Beach in Port Elizabeth and as well as chasing the glory of being a Guinness World Record holder, he will also be raising awareness and money to support underprivileged local surfers and street children. Surf Report would like to wish Josh every success in this mammoth challenge and we would love to hear if you think you could manage a 30 hour surf session?
