Surfing Guinnes world record attempt

Today was the (by now annual) attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most surfers riding on the same wave. The record of 110 surfers was set at the same spot (the famous Surfers Corner at Muizenberg Beach) almost a year ago.

Since I live so close to the beach, I had to pop around and see how they were doing.

Off to beat the record!

World record attempt

Breaking the record (well hopefully).

So did they manage to break the record? Although over 90 survers rode a single wave, the previous record was not beaten. Perhaps next year.
