Create drop down boxes to select day, month and year. This example uses the built-in functionality of django forms.

from datetime import date

class SurferForm(forms.ModelForm):
    # Create tuple containing years
    years = [(x) for x in range(1900,]

    # set field as datefield 
    # (by default this is a textfield)
    DOB = forms.DateField(label='Date of Birth',
        # create date selector 
            # provide the tuple of years created above
            (years = years,
            # Add label if no date is selected
            empty_label = ("Choose Year",
                         "Choose Month",
                         "Choose Day"),),)
    class Meta:
        model = Surfer
        fields = ['DOB',
