On the eve of International Surfing Day, the group of surfers decided to break the world record for the number of people on a giant surfboard at Huntington Beach in California, because why not?

The previous record, set in Queensland, Australia, in 2005, involved 47 surfers on a single board, cruising for a minimum of 10 seconds.

The ambitious project was all about teamwork, including waxing the giant board together.

Pro-surfer Brett Simpson told ABC7 Eyewitness that their strategy was to be a "band of brothers...everyone staying confident and if we have to use each other to balance and stabilize, we'll do anything."

The custom-built 42-foot, 1300-pound surfboard is also expected to break the world record for the largest surfboard ever made, but the decision on this will have to wait a few more days.
