NEV SMASHES THE RECORD BOOKS 08.04.05
Forty seven of the world's top surfers took part in an ‘unofficial’ record- breaking Guinness Book of Records attempt for the most number of surfers on a surfboard riding a single wave. The board is 40 feet in length by 10 feet. It took one month and 300 litres of resin, half a tonne of foam and 220 metres of fibreglass to build it at a cost of $50,000. During the attempt, the larger than life-size FCS H2 model fins were ripped out when the board ‘dry docked’ on the sand, carrying its record breaking surfers aboard. “I'm just beside myself," gasped Hyman. "All 47 surfers were in hysterics as we were getting pushed along. It only lasted a short time but this has been a mission of mine for a long time – and it's turned out fantastically." Following this event, the board goes on a global ‘Tsunami Run’, aiming to raise $200 million for tsunami victims.
