Mark Roberts from Glass Tiger makes unique wooden hybrid surf boards from his workshop in Falmouth Cornwall, and last year he made a board for our team rider Carlos Burle.

Mark says, 'Its been a huge privilege shaping a board for Carlos, and I love the way he's open to new ideas and fresh approaches in terms of what a surfboard can be made from.

The idea of building a gun for Carlos is really to test my boards in the biggest waves on the planet under the feet of one of the most talented and experienced big wave surfer's there is''.

Carlos tamed a few beasts at sunset beach Hawaii, and said ''the board felt good and I'll keep it in my quiver for sure!!!''
