Enterprising inventors have come up with a novel use for the millions of bottle corks thrown away each year - by transforming them into stunning eco surfboards.
Angel and Gloria Rodriguez Arnal collect tonnes of discarded corks from all over their native Spain then use them to form the core of their groundbreaking boards.
The pair have now launched a range of different surfboards from bodyboards to shortboards and even stand-up paddleboards, and they've called them 'corknecting boards' in a nod to their humble beginnings.
One of the largest in the collection, a 9ft paddleboard, contains almost 7,000 corks and takes a whopping 600 man hours to make.
