Tesla’s Latest Product Is A Surfboard

Tesla Releases 200 Limited Edition Carbon Fiber $1500 Surfboards

Tesla, the electric vehicle company headed by billionaire Elon Musk, briefly took to selling surfboards through its online store this weekend.

Tesla added surfboards to its gift shop on Saturday.

The billionaire this weekend unveiled limited edition Tesla surfboards that sold out soon after they were announced.

At $1,500 apiece before taxes, only 200 surfboards will be produced, and orders sold out quickly. Tesla responded that the product was already sold out as it was made in limited quantity - only 200 in number.

Musk, the CEO of Tesla, SpaceX and The Boring Company, is quite regular with interesting products that can help fund his bigger plans of hybrid cars, a hyperloop transport system and colonising Mars. With Tesla going through production problems, investors have suggested that Musk should concentrate on building electric cars.

At any rate, Tesla's surfboards are sleek and attractive-looking, matching the company's classic red-and-black color scheme. They were created as part of a collaboration between Tesla Design Studio and Lost Surfboards.

The two-metre board is made of S-glass and "Black Dart" carbon fibre and modelled with "a mix of the same high-quality matte and gloss finishes used on all [Tesla's] cars". eBay is now your only hope for snagging a Tesla surfboard - that is, if you're willing to shell out upwards of $5,000 for a single board. Those who have successfully placed an order will have to wait 2 to 10 weeks for delivery.
