Foam Cut

Client: Visit Huntington Beach

Project: Foam cut of the World’s Largest Surfboard

Scope of work

  • Foam cut

Machined in two surfaces to accommodate shipping, this complex shape came to life at Symmetrix Composite Tooling. The design was inspired by Australian surfboard shaper Nev Hyman. Westerly Marine build the board using boat building techniques, and the finishing touches were applied by local Huntington Beach surf aficionados.

The 42′ long surfboard, with 66 people on board, rode a wave for 12 seconds, breaking two Guinness World Records in the process: for most people riding a surfboard at once, and for the world’s largest surfboard.
