YouTuber and novelty wave fanatic Ben Gravy just surfed his 50th state.
Surfing in every state sounds downright impossible to most people. But to Ben Gravy, it just sounded like a splashy, fun time. 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.
