GUINESS RECORD FOR MOST SURFERS ON A BOARD
66 surfers. 42 ft. surfboard. 12 seconds ride. 1,300 lbs Nev surfboard.
What a spectacular event!
The couple main bullet points: Owen Wright scored 2 perfect heats, one of which was in the final. The Brazilian’s faltered, except Italo Ferreria. Slater showed moments of brilliance, but not sustained. Dane smashed a few sections.
