- After three hours, 55 minutes and two seconds, Gary could take no more of the strain, but by then not only had he smashed one record but also travelled 41.3 miles (66.1km), also setting the Guinness world record for the longest wave ever surfed. “This record feels incredible. I had never confronted these conditions and to surpass all these challenges and establish two Guinness records is the biggest achievement of my professional career so far,” Gary said. “Everyone that breaks a record does something incredible, but what Gary did today was truly amazing,” said Michael Janela, adjudicator from the Guinness Book of World Records. “He pushed himself to an unbelievable limit where the only thing that stopped him was his body, not his will. To do it by surfing the Panama Canal is truly unbelievable and sets his efforts apart from everyone else.”
