Before they step foot in the water, members of the Sunset Surf Club in PNG have to make their own boards. It's the only place in the world where the surfboards come straight from the jungle.
"We didn't have enough boards for all the kids so they started cutting up trees to make surfboards themselves", recalls club founder Stephen Tekwei. The perfect board requires the right tree, known locally as a Tapa. It takes just a few hours to carve a surfboard but it's not ready to surf until traditional village markings are applied.
