Kure Beach surfer sets Guinness World Record


KURE BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- A Kure Beach surfer says he has set a Guinness World Record this weekend.

Ben Shaw started Saturday at 6:30 in the morning to beat the longest recorded surf session at 29 hours and 5 minutes.

Shaw decided to take on the Guinness World Record to help awareness for ocean cure, non-profit that allows children with disabilities to experience the freedom of surfing.

Last year, Ben Shaw beat a North Carolina record after surfing every single day for 439 days.

Hope he had a Guiness judge present.

Guiness takes their records very seriously and I hope he followed all the Guiness guidelines and met all the requirements or his record won't count.

Yes !!!

Nice job Ben !!!! Between this and the teen surfers at Surf City rescuing that toddler you guys have done a great job of exposing the good deeds of the surfing community !!!
