Caleb Acosta, a 15-year-old cancer patient, traveled from Florida to Del Mar in San Diego County to realize his dream of hitting the waves with Ricochet, a surfing dog.

Doctors diagnosed Caleb with terminal brain cancer last July, and gave him just six months to live. But that didn't stop Caleb from dreaming of surfing with Ricochet, who he saw on ESPN surfing with others with disabilities.

Caleb has had two surgeries, on his back and brain, but there is no cure for his cancer. He and his family are just hoping and praying for the best, and enjoying the ride, with ricochet.
