On Monday night, Drew Brees, the 39-year-old New Orleans Saints quarterback, broke the NFL record of 71,940 career passing yards.

Congrats to Drew as we look back to April, when Brees touched down at the WSL Surf Ranch looking to trade sacks for shacks.

The visit came on the heels of a session with PGA golfers Rafael Cabrera-Bello and Adam Scott, who were wide-eyed after trying the wave, and left with warm, water-soaked fuzzies.

While Brees has surfed less than his golfing counterparts, he still managed some impressive pocket presence, for significant yardage.

Plus, after a quick huddle with Slater and Tahitian Raimana Bastolaer, the unofficial Surf Ranch coach, Brees even made it to the end zone of Lemoore: the wave pool's high-speed barrel section.

While we can't tell if Brees's enhanced surf skills translated to his recent spike in success on the field, but as every surfer knows, there is nothing like getting in the water.
