DANA POINT (AP) — A Southern California teen who says surfing keeps her stoked marked a milestone by hitting the waves daily for three years, a newspaper reported Monday.

Meg Roh, 15, of Dana Point completed 1,095 consecutive days of surfing Sunday at San Onofre State Beach, the Orange County Register said.

“Every day I surf, I get stoked. It’s definitely taught me that I can do any of the dreams I set my mind to,” she said.

Roh was joined by family and friends to celebrate her accomplishment at the beach where she began her feat.

Her mother, Sue Hann, says she’s proud of her daughter’s dedication and discipline.

“It’s a big deal on the days you don’t want to get out there. I feel like that’s such discipline, to know that’s her goal and she’s going to do anything to get there, even when she doesn’t want to do it,” said Hann.

Roh began her surfing streak on June 1, 2011, when she made a vow to surf every day of summer. She decided to try to make it to 100 days and then 300 days and it kept going.

Roh is also hailed by local surfers, including 69-year-old Bob Keifer, who has been a regular at San Onofre for more than 30 years.

“For a young kid to inspire old guys like me is quite an achievement... I think it’s incredible,” Keifer said.

Several of the locals sported pink heart-shaped stickers on their cars that say: “Meg Would Go.”
