Dale Webster

OK. I give up. I recognize I have met my match.

I have this rather pathetic little goal to sail my Laser 100 days in 2008. Less than one day in every three. For just one year.

Then there's Dale Webster. He has surfed every day, every single day for the last 32 years. And he's still going. This dude is my age. I salute the master.

Of course it takes some sacrifices to achieve a feat like this. "I have no retirement plan, no house, no four-oh-ten-K or whatever those numbers mean," he says. "My attitude was always, If I can just get to the beach, the rest of the day will take care of itself."

Indeed.

"11,919 consecutive days" in and on the water! Woah! We salute you, Dale!

Wow. Of course going surfing everyday is probably easier than going sailing everyday since you can just jump into the water with your board, catch a few waves and then be off to the rest of your day. To do that with sailing you'd have to live on a beach in Rhode Island or something.
