most surfers on a single wave New World Record in Surfing

In an event called the Earthwave Global Surf Challenge, a new record for the number of surfers surfing a single wave was broken this month. The event involves an annual event of surfers at various surf breaks around the globe attempting to break the same record. The heart of the event is to raise awareness for global warming and sustainable lifestyles.

The old record for the number of people to ride a single wave at one time was 100 (set in Earthwave Brazil, Santos in 2008)… which seems fairly unbreakable.  But on October 4th, the record was broken at Muizenberg Corner, Cape Town South Africa when more than 100 people surfed the same wave. “We estimated that there were more than 120 surfers on the fifth of the seven waves surfed at Muizenberg during Earthwave,” said a founder of the event, Paul Botha of Kahuna Promotions. While this first estimate of 120 surfers on the wave wasn’t unreasonable, taking into account that more than 440 surfers attempted the wave, photographic evidence shown here shows 103 surfers on the same wave … still enough to break the old record of 100.
