    Champion, there is a guy Dale Webste who has over 10400 consecutive days surfing, he started back in 1976. One friend did over 300 days skiing in a year, i thought that was pretty impressive for an ozzy (including being here for the Australian season).

    10400 days is impressive but it is heaps easier to do than skiing...

    He's from Northern California, not that easy [​IMG] , i surfed Santa Cruz one Feb a few years back in 9 deg water.

    Just found a more up to date link, Now he’s passed 33 years and 12,054 consecutive days.

    Not meaning to take away from the ski Champ, the challenge is there for someone.

    What I don't understand is why he has to take his skis on the BM every day. Surely mtn employees get lockers?

    I think OCD. But, all cred to him. Keen. No mention of a wife/kids.
