The late ex-Pres. George Bush skydived on his birthday every year until Parkinson's prevented him from doing it in his early 90s. If this guy can still surf now and hopes to at age 100, more power and good luck to him.

This is inspiring! I hope and plan to be active and doing the things I love at 89 at 100 :-)

THIS is the secret to a long and happy life. No one EVER gets tired or bored of surfing. Sano has found the fountain, or should I say waves, of youth.

Well, there is nothing more boring than no waves!

But yes, it I live until 100, I want to spend my 100th birthday in the waves!

What an inspiration. I'd like to call him into a few set waves. Might have to hunt him down for a session.
