A record breaking day

The big event of the day will be the Guinness Book of Records breaking attempt to ride the worlds biggest surfboard with the most people to attempt to ride the board. The original world record setting surfboard was 39.3 feet long, 9.8 feet wide, and 11.8 inches thick.  It was designed by Australian shaper Nev Hyman and took four shapers 60 days to build.  The surfboard that will be used on June 20, 2015 will be 42 feet long, 11 feet wide, and 16 inches thick. That is a huge board!

The record for most riders riding a single surfboard is 47 and was set on March 5, 2005 in Queensland, Australia during the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast. This weekend will see us try to break that record and the unofficial record that was set back in 2005 during the US Open of surfing with 60 riding the massive board
