Mercedes-Benz x Garrett McNamara Cork Surfboard

Mercedes-Benz may not be known for their surfboards, but after unveiling their Silver Arrows of the Sea last year, we’ve been waiting to see more from the German luxury brand. We didn’t have to wait too long as Benz has released an all new cork surfboard.

Once again they have teamed up with big wave surfer Garrett McNamara to craft what could be the most gorgeous surfboard of all time. Ditching your typical foam construction, MB opted for a board made entirely from Portugal-sourced cork produced by Polen Surfboards. For surfing big waves, McNamara needed a flexible board, and this thing fits the bill perfectly adding flexibility to the mix without sacrificing strength. The surfboard was created specifically for McNamara’s return to the North Canyon waves in Nazare, where he will ride the waves that made him famous. Seeing that he set the record for the highest wave ever surfed on his MBoards from Mercedes-Benz, we can’t wait to see what he’s capable of doing while shredding the surf on this thing.
