I am extremely excited to be helping local surfer and professional colleague, Kurtis Loftus with his Guinness Book of World Records attempt for the longest continuous surf session over 26+ hours, raising money for Donna Deegan’s Foundation for Breast Cancer awareness, this Tueday, October 25th and Wednesday the 26th at the Jacksonville Beach Pier. (Pleas note: He has moved up the event date to coincide with optimal surf consitions).
I’ll be an official eyewitness for Kurtis, a passionate surfer, artist, designer, marketing strategist and civic-minded wildman, paddling out with him from 9 pm – 12 am on the 25th, then again from 6 am to 9 am on the 26th.
The current world record was set in Huntington Beach, CA and you can read more about it on Kurtis’ Marathonsurfer website. This is also where you can donate to the cause, which I hope you do.
Kurtis is trying to raise $10,000 and is putting his health and safety on the line to do so. He will be physically and mentally tested in extreme ways. If you are unable to contribute from your wallet, please simply consider contributing from your heart, by sending words of encouragement through the website and keeping him in your prayers.
