A corknecting board.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
One of the largest in the collection, a 9ft paddleboard, contains almost 7,000 corks and takes a whopping 600 man hours to make.
