A group of surfers set a world record on Saturday in Southern California for most people riding a board at one.

Sixty-six people, including surf champions and local heroes, were among those who hung loose on a custom built 42-foot board off Huntington Beach.

The Orange County Register reports the 66 surfers rode a wave for 12 seconds. They broke the previous record set in Queensland, Australia, about 10 years ago when 47 surfers rode a wave for 10 seconds.

About 5,000 spectators crowded the sand and the Huntington Beach pier to watch the attempt.

Guinness World Record adjudicator Michael Empric said a separate record for whether the 1,300-pound board is the world’s largest will take a few days to determine.
