Triston Gailey Surfing Video: 3-Year-Old Surfer Prodigy Hangs 10 With Dad In Morro Bay

Posted: Updated:

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- At age 3, Triston Gailey hangs ten.

Ditching his Thomas the Tank Engine T-shirt for a wetsuit and life jacket, the preschooler rides the waves with the big boys on the Central California coast.

Triston's father, Todd Gailey, tells the San Luis Obispo Tribune (http://bit.ly/18tR9c8) that his son started boogie boarding with his 6-year-old sister last year. But when the blond-haired toddler began standing up on the short board, his dad bought him a 5-foot-8 surfboard from Costco.

Right away, Triston was turning heads as he perfected his form: poised and balanced, hands out in front as he rides waves to shore in Morro Bay.

Todd Gailey, a life-long surfer, calls his son a "natural," and the most coordinated 3-year-old he's ever seen.
