It’s not one, but three for the record books.
On Saturday, pro surfer Scott Chandler set a trio of Guinness World Records at the 7th annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition in Imperial Beach, Calif.
Chandler recruited pups of all sizes from the SoCal Surf Dogs team, including a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Jack Russell Terrier, to help him set these Guinness records:
1. Most dogs surfing on one board at one time — more than 14 dogs on a surfboard that Chandler custom designed for the event.
2. Most canines (a grand total of eight) riding the waves on one board at one time with one person, Chandler.
3. Most dogs surfing on one board at one time with two people: Eight dogs (among them was a famous surfing Golden Retriever named Ricochet) with Chandler and his daughter, Tyler.
The event drew thousands of spectators from across the country — not to mention more than 50 dogs who love to surf.
