SA surfers to challenge Brazil's 100-surfer Earthwave world record this weekend

2009-10-03 00:00

AFTER the Brazilians set a Guinness World Record of 100 surfers on the same wave during their Earthwave last year, South African surfers are now attempting to break that record at the Earthwave festival this weekend to be held at Muizenburg beach.

The surfers could not have asked for a better cheerleader than KZN beauty, Chanel Grantham, who was crowned Miss Earth South Africa.

The Earthwave festivals form part of the global Earthwave surfing and sustainable lifestyle aimed at encouraging the reduction of our carbon footprint.

Grantham is a third year student at the University of Cape Town and is studying towards her Bachelor of Science degree in Property and Construction Studies, with a sharp focus in green development and sustainable living. “We are faced with a global warming crisis. We all need to be aware of our responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint,” said Grantham.
