Dylan Eckhart, 16, of Waterford rides his skateboard home after surfing at Ocean Beach Park in New London, Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017.
Eckhart said he is a lifeguard at Ocean Beach Park and has watched the area around the jetty and thought it could possibly be an area to get some surfing in.
Tuesday he went surfing at that spot for the first time and went again Wednesday, but conditions were not as good. He decided to go again because he couldn't pass up the chance, saying he "always dreamed of surfing at Ocean Beach."
