On June 20th, 2015, 66 people in Huntington Beach broke the world record for most people riding a surfboard at once. We did it on the biggest Surfboard in the world with a 12 second ride.

Nev Hyman, founder of Firewire Surfboards, sent the CAD design of Pro Surfer Michel Bourez’s Quad Shortboard to some amazing boat makers/waterman at Rhode Island’s mouldCAM and Westerly Marine in Santa Ana.

Then they painted the board as a replica of Huntington’s very own Brett Simpson. For more information Click HereRead More
