GMAC, as McNamara is called in the surfing scene, does also not hesitate to venture out to the most remote locations, even surfing ice-cold glacier waves in Alaska amid towering icebergs up to 90 metres high. He has courageously, unconditionally, and relentlessly pushed the limits in his sport with phenomenal visions and pioneering spirit. For decades, McNamara has also been exemplary in advancing its technical requirements.
For the construction of his high-tech board, he took innovative materials from the aviation industry and developed special designs for wetsuits that have already saved his life in tempestuous waters on the Portuguese coast. The extreme surfer and Mercedes-Benz ambassador also passionately supports worldwide projects for socially disadvantaged children.
