Sand Angels, World Record Attempt

Gold Coast sets out to break the world record for Most People Making Sand Angels Simultaneously

Dominica Czaczka | November 2019

Forget snow angels – we do things a little differently here on the Gold Coast.

Grab the crew and polish off your sand angel making skills folks; the Gold Coast is gearing up to take out the world record for Most People Making Sand Angels Simultaneously on Friday 22 November.

Ludington Michigan, USA is the current title holder, boasting 1387 sand angels in 2017.

The Gold Coast is aiming to attract 1500 participants on the day to Kurrawa Beach. Registration will begin at 6am with sand angels at the ready for a 6.40am attempt.

Mayor Tom Tate is confident the Gold Coast has what it takes to become the new record holder.

“The current world record is held by a city without stunning ocean beaches like ours. It makes sense for the Gold Coast to steal the crown – our beaches are better!”

“Gold Coasters were born for this” he says.

Groundwater Country Music Festival Director Mark Duckworth said the record attempt was a great opportunity for the Gold Coast community to do their bit for Aussie farmers and rural communities doing it tough.

“The beach will lend a hand to the bush, with Groundwater Country Music Festival and We are Gold Coast joining forces to support charity Drought Angels.

“Drought Angels is a small charity run by big hearts, focused on providing personalised and meaningful assistance to Aussie farmers and rural communities. They help those who would not normally reach out, but prefer to battle it alone. Their one-on-one support is invaluable and aids in breaking down the barriers of a proud demographic who quite often have never received a hand up.

“Participation for the world record is free, however we’re encouraging Gold Coasters to dig deep and donate to this worthy cause on the day of the event,” he says.

Director and Co-Founder of Drought Angels Tash Johnston said it was touching to see the beach come together and give a helping hand to the bush.

“Donations on the day will help us keep our Aussie farmers on their land, support their families and our rural communities during hardship.”

Every dollar and angel counts, so come down on the day and be someone’s angel.
