Have you heard? Newcastle is attempting to beat the current Guinness World Record for the longest line of surfboards to commemorate the 30th birthday of Surfest!

Newcastle needs lots of boards – 500 of them, in fact. And, that’s why Newcastle needs YOU!

Registration is now open, visit www.visitnewcastle.com.au/guinness-world-record to register.

The current world record for the longest line of surfboards, laid end to end, is 398 surfboards and measures 783.5 metres. It was achieved by the City of Onkaparinga at Port Noarlunga Beach in Adelaide on 14 December 2013.

The City of Newcastle is hoping to smash the current World Record, aiming for 500 surfboards in a continuous line, so tell everyone, grab a mate and your boards and head down to Nobbys Beach and Headland.
