MBOARD, THE SURF BY MERCEDES & MCNAMARA

March 2014 | SURFBOARDS

Mercedes, who’s motto is « Nothing but the best », paired with famous surfer Garett McNamara - which holds the world record for the longest wave ever surfed (24 meters) at large of Nazaré - to create 4 surfboards dedicated to surfing giant waves. Mercedes-Benz AMG’s Design Center in Stuttgart is in charge of the conception, meanwhile McNamara is responsible for the board’s shapes and their performances. The boards are manufactured in the traditional way (foam, central stringer, fibers and resin during stratification) and undergo a series of tests in a wind funnel, in order to find the lowest resistance to water and guarantee optimal speed. The rigidity and position of the straps are determined by McNamara himself. Naturally, Mercedes-Benz called these boards « Silver Arrows from the Sea » http://vimeo.com/87930590
