The technical know-how of Mercedes-Benz took to the water to produce a new surfboard for Garrett McNamara, the American professional big wave surfer and current world record holder for the biggest wave ever surfed. Made in partnership with Polen Surfboards of Portugal, the board is entirely made of cork, sourced from the company’s native land. It’s already been handed over to McNamara, who will use the innovative board to surf the monstrous waves of the Northern Canyon in Nazaré, Portugal. A second model, still in development, will be made of the foam used to manufacture aircraft wings.
