Sunday was EARTHWAVE day! Over 400 people signed up to try break the Guinness World Record for how many surfers on one wave. The old record was somewhere just over 100, so we had our work cut out for us. First we all lined up along the beach, hundreds of people and hundreds of boards... and in we plunged. Paddling out through mercifully calm and small Muizenberg waves. What an unbelievably heartwarming experience, to be so many people focused together on one very simple goal: Standing Up.

With a whoop and a shout we took off- and there I stood, happy and proud on my board, with over a hundred people with me. We whooped and cheered like kids as the wave carried us forward. Back out to the backline, wait for the next wave... go go GO!! PADDLE!
120 people on one wave!!
