Number of the Day: 71, Wait, No: 84


71 -- the new world record for the same number of surfers on the same wave, set by surfers participating in Earth Wave Global Surf Challenge in Cape Town, a worldwide event to raise awareness about global warming. The Cape Town surfers eclipsed the old record of 44 surfers on September 2, 2007.

84 -- the really new world record for the same number of surfers on the same wave, set by surfers participating in the challenge in Brazil a few hours after Cape Town set the record. Don't feel bad, South Africa -- everyone wins when global warming awareness is the game!
