Brazilian breaks record for surfing on longest board
RIO DE JANEIRO: A Brazilian surfer broke his own record after riding a wave on an extra-long 30-foot (9.16-metre) surfboard for over ten seconds. In 2006, Rico de Souza broke the Guinness World Record by riding a wave on a 25.6-foot board (8.05-m). From his prior experience, Souza developed the new 100-kilo (220-pound) surfboard with the adjustments he had missed before. Souza said that surfing the lengthy board was a challenging, but thrilling experience. Souza also organized another record in September this year, when 88 people surfed the same wave for over ten seconds up four from 2007.
