    I don't know how you east coast guys do it. It was TERRIBLE here from early August until October and I still paddled out once a week just so I didn't become an angry person. If I don't get a minimum of 3 surf days per week I freak out

    420 days consecutively

    I got 50 days in this year, not consecutive but it was the most I ever surfed in my life. And was set as a goal since I turned 50 this year. Mother ocean almost kept me from reaching it. An hour away from the beach, with wife, my own company and 2 very over achieving, sports and clubs kids. I did get some of the best swells and sessions I've ever had.

    Me too.
    Over the past year, I averaged 3x/wk (157 days); but since X-mas, it's been 1x/week.
    Most days in a row: 5. The Navy base where I work is right on the beach, so I've squeezed in 3 sessions on a few days last summer-early fall.
    But if it starts becoming a chore to go out, maybe it's time to back off a bit and do something different for awhile. Variety never hurts. Or, if you're married, take care of those long outstanding honey-do's at home. Frosty's kitchen cabinets in Chasing Mavericks come to mind.

It's by no means the accomplishment of 14,000 consecutive days but he was out in tough winter conditions with full gear every day.
    Surfed with this guy and his crazy son many a times. Without going into detail, I cant stand these guys. They think they are so entitled to whatever spot they end up at on any given day. I have had words with both him and his son. They can be tolerated in moderate doses, but the sheer douchiness of them makes my skin crawl. It makes me feel bad that they represent us as surfers when the rest of us are not around to testify against it. I have read Ralph's blog from time to time, but its pretty annoying. His intentions are right, but he pretty damn arrogant. There are so many of us who get along out there, why toss these guys who get agro about waist high waves into the mix. We all want waves, but get over yourself. N.O.Y.A.

    Haha too funny Mcgregorsmith i thought his son would be on the world tour by now. I check his blog out for the photos but never actually read the stuff he writes.

    Don't think I've ever kept track... surely I'm nowhere around the 14,000 mark! That's pretty impressive! You are definitely one with the ocean racking up all that time spent in the water. Hell I bet every sea creature out there knows the guy!

    Though not consecutively I'm pondering trying to figure out how many times I've actually paddled out?!

    I just wonder about the roughest,storm surf days...if his criteria is 3 waves, how could you paddle out on days like when it's a really rough northeast here and surf 3 waves?
