Pictured above are Bob Steel and John Barnitt of mouldCAM, a boat building company in Bristol, Rhode Island. They are standing next to the two halves of what will be the largest surfboard in the world.
It will be 42 feet long and 11 feet wide. It will be able to hold up to 62 people at the same time. To secure a world record, the board will have to hold those 62 people on a wave for at least 10 seconds.
Barnitt and Steel plan to complete their board and take out on the water at Huntington Beach, California—AKA “Surf City”—in June.
