On Saturday, September 19, former touring pro surfer Damien Hobgood will be joining hundreds of surfers at Mission Beach in the Hundred Wave Challenge, where participants ride 100 waves over a 12-hour period. Similar to a walk-a-thon, friends and family of the surfers will sponsor each wave ridden to benefit the Boys to Men Mentoring program.

In 1994, at the Quicksilver Pro in Fiji, Hobgood established a record highest two-wave score in pro surfing, a 19.9 out of 20 points. Kelly Slater eclipsed Hobgood’s record one year later, scoring a perfect 20.0.
