Beach blades! Maine teen glides over frozen sand, surf

YORK, Maine — Beachgoers in Maine have caught an unusual sight — an ice skater's blades gliding over frozen sand and surf.

Grant Long celebrated his 18th birthday Saturday by skating on the newfound patch of ice after record-low temperatures caused Long Sands Beach to freeze over.

Long's mother says her son got his skates for Christmas and felt as if the ice was a "birthday bonus."

Onlookers at the beach captured a video of Long skating and posted it to Facebook Monday. The video has gathered more than 170,000 views, with commenters saying they have never witnessed such a sight.

Long's mother says the teen is an old soul, and he will definitely write about his experience in his journal
