A New Cruising Toy: Super-Cool, Limited-Edition Tesla Surfboard

If you’re looking for another toy (particularly a super-cool toy) for your next cruise, consider the new limited-edition Tesla surfboard. The only problem is that you’ll probably have to find one on eBay, since the company sold out the first batch of 200 of them, for $1,500 each, in just one day.

The 6’ 8” red-and-black boards are made with carbon fiber and were developed by the Tesla Design Studio and Matt “Mayhem” Biolos, a surfboard shaper from Lost Surfboards in San Clemente. The company says they feature “a mix of the same high-quality matte and gloss finishes used on all our cars” with a deck that’s “reinforced with light-weight ‘Black Dart’ carbon fiber” and “tonal logos in subtle contract gloss.”

After the boards were sold out, they started appearing for sale on eBay, with prices from $3,000 to $5,000.

The company says the board can fit into a Tesla Model S, X and 3. But they certainly also could fit on the cabintop of most cruising boats as well, or even in the lazarette of a larger boat. And you don’t need to surf to enjoy your Tesla board; just paddle around your next anchorage and you’ll certainly turn a lot of heads. Read more:
