      Age 3, hanging 10: Preschooler surfer is a natural

      SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) 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.
