Meet Ho Daddy O's Surf Cream & Surf Camp Owner

Ho Daddy Os Surf Cream Ponce Inlet ice creamLooking for someone to teach your kids how to swim in the ocean, surf or just be more competent in the water?  Maybe it’s not surfing but paddle boarding.  Michael O’Shaughnessy is the owner of Ponce Inlet’s Ho Daddy O’s Surf Cream, Ho Daddy O’s Surfing School and a real estate agency.  Mike holds the world’s record for paddle boarding from Cuba to the USA (called the Florida Straits) and crossed the English Channel (he did it in 5 hours and 9 minutes) on a paddle board.  

He is a graduate from Florida’s UFC and played football there as a defensive end.  He holds the record for the most sacks in a single game (5) set in 1979.  Mike also has 22 career sacks and graduated from UCF in 2010.   He has an extensive Wikipedia here.

You can read more about Michael O’Shaughnessy here.  If you are looking for a better teacher, you might have to look around.  If Mike can make it across the Caribbean or the English Channel, I think he might have some good advice to share.  He is an author of two books (Millennium Woman and Blue Collar Iron Man, co- authored with Dr. Frank Rohter).  Michael co-founded along with his wife, the Millennium Woman’s Foundation.  This non-profit organization has funded over 250 educational scholarships to single-parent females nationwide.

Mike also owns a Real Estate Company he started in 1986 called Michael O’Shaughnessy Real Estate Brokers.  It is located:  201 West Canton Avenue, Suite 44
Winter Park, Florida 32789.  You can be reach Mike and his team about real estate here:  Office: 407.628.4430  Cell: 407.539.4844

Where You Scared? (Hell Yeah, are you kiddin me!)

If you were curious how someone might paddle across the Caribbean?  Have a look at this as Mike paddles into the lion’s mouth!  Mike got to see a whale up close and almost became breakfast for some hungry sharks.  Where you scared…  lol
