Video: Ben Gravy Surfs All 50 States

YouTuber and novelty wave fanatic Ben Gravy just surfed his 50th state.

Having grown up on the New Jersey breaks, the perennially upbeat surfer is known for seeking out wacky waves. And what started as a joke — to surf all 50 states — quickly turned into a bonafide mission.

Three years after starting, Gravy has completed the journey. From snowmelt rivers in Colorado to big waves in Hawaii, he surfed it all. It’s a good reminder that even if you live in landlocked North Dakota, surf dreams are possible. It will just take a little creativity and a positive attitude.
