Notice of Final Date and Start Time – Marathon Surfer

October 23rd, 2011 by Kurtis

Hey Friends,
First — You are awesome for your patience and thoughtfulness (sorry for duplication with this email).
Second — I am blessed to be in the midst of so much positive energy directed at finishing breast cancer.

“But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.
For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.”

Without faith I would not be doing this marathon record attempt.
Without the spirit exhibited by the cancer and non cancer survivors that I’ve met over the past six years you would not be getting overwhelmed by my emails. There would be no overcoming fear. There would be no unselfish acts. There would just be a guy that thought this was a cool stunt and wanted to raise some money.

If you have not heard I am now going to have to surf for about 30 hrs to accomplish the record.
Earlier this month someone made a 28+ hr attempt and has placed a claim with Guinness.
My start time is now Tuesday, October 25, 12:30 and I will not finish until Wednesday 9:00.
We have 3hr surf sessions scheduled with 15 minute breaks between each session.
Attached is a rough schedule (it has changed 4x’s).
Just like the ocean this attempt will be FLUID.
I expect a lot of challenges and adjustments. If you are a volunteer or want to be out there supporting just show up!!!
Current Volunteers and Sponsors — Please come when you can and spend whatever time you can.

This is now in greater hands than mine.

The schedule below is a “bare-bones” summary. I know it has changed and there are holes but I just can’t sweat it any more.
I know a lot of people are available to help. Again, just show up when you can and stay as long as you want. Please call or email to let me know.
I will keep a final log through Tuesday morning.
After the event starts my guess is that it won’t be more than six hours when we have a different vision of how to finish.

Thanks Again!!
