Josh Enslin Sets Guinness World Record for Longest Surf Session

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 14 January, 2016 - According to a press release sent out by Billabong South Africa, teamrider Josh Enslin's 30-hour and 11-minute session has been officially recognized by the Guiness Book of World Records.

South African surfer and Billabong employee Josh Enslin has officially set a new Guinness World Record for the longest surf session ever at Pollock Beach in Port Elizabeth, located in Africa’s Eastern Cape Province.

Josh braved freezing cold water and a shark-infested lineup for a mammoth 30-hour and 11-minute session. His efforts trumped the previous record of 29 hours and 27 minutes set by American Ben Shaw in North Carolina.

“The toughest part for me was the 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. stretch. Conditions were freezing, fatigue had set in, and my body was freezing,” Enslin said. “The waves had picked up as well, so I was duck diving all the time.”

Through this unbelievable feat, Enslin not only set a Guinness World Record, but was also able to raise 2,000 dollars for supplies to donate to those less fortunate in the Port Elizabeth community.
