    A surfer in Huntington Beach, Calif., recently claimed to have set a new Guinness World Record for surfing for 26 hours; come to find out, the record was only 15 hours, if it even was a record to begin with. The original record setter hadn't yet submitted his record.
    Sounded like a publicity stunt, actually.

    Check out my avatar, it's from Mavericks where only the best and crazy ride. Inside, to the southwest of the harbor's breakwater is a nice little break I surfed often as kid. Outside = Death in a minute for anyone but an expert.
