NASHVILLE (WSMV) – To keep himself busy during the pandemic, an 11-year-old boy from New Jersey made his goal of surfing for 1,000 days.
Carter Doorley will drag his surfboard through the snow and ice of the New Jersey coast just to make sure he keeps up with his goal.
On his first trip to Nashville, Doorley was given special clearance into SoundWaves at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel to ensure he could continue with his goal.
“The Carter family contacted us, telling us about their family plan and his profile,” said Donny Wensinger, General Manager of SoundWaves. “It just really pulls on our hearts, so here I am today. The water park is closed just to serve Carter today.”
Carter believes that you are never too young to create your own goals and pursue them to the end.
“I say do your best and never give up,” he said.
Carter has now surfed 634 days in a row and plans to continue.
