A former world champion tandem surfer has unofficially broken the dog surfing world record by standing 25 dogs on a single board.
Chris de Aboitiz paddled the pups on a 17-foot-long, five-feet-wide stand up board in the surf off a Queensland beach at Seventeen Seventy, the ABC reports.
The dogs, which were all ages, included kelpies, maltese, golden retrievers and red and blue heelers.
“I think we ended up with 26 dogs but one abandoned ship pretty quickly,” Mr de Aboitiz said.
“They all had fun, nobody drowned… it went great.”
More than 100 bystanders watched as Mr de Aboitiz, who is a dog trainer and known among friends as ‘the dog whisperer, successfully beat the record of dogs on one board.
The previously standing official record was 17 dogs.
The Sydney-born champ won the World Tandem Surfing title in 1999 and has been involved in teaching people and to surf and sail ever since.
He first set his sights on breaking the dog surfing record in earlier this year.
“We’ve been test it (the board) out with a bunch of dogs and a bunch of kids so the other day we had six dogs on there, six people,” he told the ABC in January.
