She has become a bit of an icon because of it, and there really wasn’t any intention of doing so when she set out in June 2011 to surf everyday until a contest she was in. ESPN’s SportsCenter even jumped on the story and recently had Roh on for a segment to talk about her feat.
As Roh tells Will Reave on SportsCenter, “By the end of summer I had surfed 90 days, and after that I decided to do 10 more to make 100. And then it just kept going and going. I really never planned on having it be this long, I just surf everyday because I love to surf.”
While Roh’s feat is a major one, it is decades away from Dale Webster’s all-time record of 40-ish years. But if anyone’s going to break it, Roh certainly could — only 34 more years!
