Exhausted Aussie Surfer Triumphant After Smashing World Record

Blake Johnston emerged from the surf at Cronulla Beach exhausted and aching but with a world record to his name.
The Sydney local surfed continuously for 40 hours, enduring two days of 30-plus degrees Celcius temperatures to raise money for youth mental health.
Johnston said he was “pretty cooked” while briefly returning to the beach to speak with reporters during the record attempt as spectators cheered him on.
“Thanks everyone, you’re the best,” Johnston said, before heading back into the swell.
“Everyone deserves to feel awesome, deserves to take care of yourselves.”
Johnston was eventually helped from the water at 5pm on Mar. 17, smashing the previous record held by South African Josh Enslin by 10 hours….
