The £760,000 Wooden Surfboard

When it comes to this almighty surfboard, the only ‘wipe out’ you’ll need to worry about will be the inside of your wallet.

The Rampant will set you back a cool £760,000. Taken aback by the figure? There is a valid reason why the chunky 6cm thick sports accessory costs the same price as a supercar. Not to mention sounding like one.

Sanded down by high-end and experienced New Zealand surfboard shaper Roy Stuart, this Paulwonia timber wave-hugger doesn’t merely look incredible, it’s been methodically designed to give the best ride on the water there has ever been.

With a single concave stretching from soft nose to tail, resulting in a lower centre of gravity for the rider, the frame also contains two unique fins (one a 6-inch kahikatea wood tunnel, the other a punctured polycarbonate addition) to deliver rapid acceleration when piloted.

And if all that weren’t enough, it's finished with a regal 23-Karat gold figure of a lion outlined in semi-translucent red resin.

You know, so you won't get it mixed up with other surfboards.
