Surfer Scott Chandler guides a world record-setting group of pups at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Co …It's not one, but three for the record books.

On Saturday, pro surfer Scott Chandler set a trio of Guinness Book of World Records at the 7th annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition in Imperial Beach, Calif.

Chandler recruited pups of all sizes from the SoCal Surf Dogs team to help him set these Guinness records:

1. Most dogs surfing on one board at one time - more than 14 dogs! The previous record was seven.

2. Most canines (8 dogs) riding the waves on one board at one time with one person, which was Chandler.

3. Most dogs surfing on one board (8 dogs) at one time with two people: Chandler and his daughter, Tyler.

The dogs ranged in size from Nani, a 7-year-old Bernese Mountain dog to a bunch of small poodle-terrier mixes, including my dog, Cleo. There were Jack Russell Terrier's (Parson terrier), a famous golden retriever named Ricochet (Surf-ice dog), mixed breeds, male and female - all spayed/neutered. Age wise the pups ranged from 1 to 10.

The event drew thousands of spectators from across the country - not to mention more than 50 dogs who love to surf. See Video of Dogs Breaking the World Record
