Nic Bothma is one of the best surfing photographers in the world. Even with his experience and the benefit of a helicopter, he didn't really get a compelling picture of the seventy plus surfers riding one wave. This earlier image, though, really hits the mark. The colors, the detail and the reflections in the water are a visual treat.
South African surfers run into the ocean prior to breaking the Guiness World Record for the most surfers riding one wave simultaneously at Muizenberg Corner, Cape Town South Africa 02 September 2007. The previous record of 44 was broken when 71 surfers rode one wave as part of the Earthwave Global Surf Challenge.
