The 66 surfers rode a wave on the 11-foot-wide board for 12 seconds

On Saturday off Huntington Beach in California sixty-six surfers hung loose on a made-to-order 42-foot board and set a Guinness world record, becoming the biggest number of people, which were riding a single board at once.

The crowd of more than 5000 spectators came to the Huntington Beach on Saturday to become the eyewitnesses of setting the Guinness world record.

According to the Orange County Register’s report, those surfers were staying on the 11-foot-wide board for 12 seconds, so they broke the previous record for 10 seconds set in Australia.

That previous record was set in Queensland, Australia, around ten years ago. Then 47 surfers rode a wave on a custom built 39-foot board.

Besides, another Guinness record can be set as it hasn’t been yet determined whether the 1 300-pound board is the world’s largest or not, according to  Michael Empric, adjudicator for Guinness World Record.

The gigantic board will be kept outside the International Surfing Museum

He also stated:

This is a really great record. To see it done on such an epic scale is really exciting.

Those, who want to take photos with the ‘gigantic’ surfing board, can do it near the International Surfing Museum, outside which the board will be capt.
