Mercedes-Benz creates surfboards for Garrett McNamara.
Mercedes-Benz has created four boards exclusively for the surfer Garrett McNamara, made to “ride” the waves off the coast of Nazaré, Portugal. These boards were designed and implemented in collaboration with teams of designers and engineers from the Mercedes-Benz Design Centre. Each has a slightly different shape and was made to measure according to the weight and height of the champion. This joint project, entitled “MBoard “, illustrates the ethos of Mercedes-Benz: to make the best or nothing at all.
