Sarah Hughen surfed 365 consecutive days against cancer

Sarah Hughen, a surfer from Wisconsin, has completed a year of surfing for the cause of breast cancer. She planned to surf every day, during 365 days straight with no exceptions, and she finally made it on the 30th April. “I can’t believe I am going to be saying this… I’m done! So surreal”, said Hughen on the last day of her consecutive surfing year. The red hair surfer learned to ride waves only when she was an adult, but now she is an experienced waterwoman. It would be easy to find Sarah. During the last 365 days, she went surfing with one of her three pink surfboards. Sometimes she would surf alone, sometimes she was joined by friends and locals. Sarah Hughen lives in Cardiff, California.

The 23-year old Hawaiian surfer suffered a boring injury during last year’s O’Neill Coldwater Classic, at Santa Cruz, and is still away from the hypest racing lanes of the Tour. In fact, Payne does not know when he is authorized to hit the water with this power surfing skills. The injury proved worse than initially imagined and since then, it’s been plasma transfusions, Nike scientists and the ever-painful waiting game. Dusty also believes that modern surfing is pushing too much the athlete’s ankles and knees, while pulling aerials and sharp carves.
