Tesla briefly offered a $1500 surfboardJuly 29, 2018
Elon Musk has come up withs some interesting merchandise to promote his companies over the years: he recently sold Boring Company hats and then a branded flame thrower. Yesterday, his electric car company Tesla released a new product: a $1500 surfboard.
Tesla already sells quite a bit of merchandise: hats, shirts, and even a kid-sized ridable car, and briefly, the surfboard. Electrek spotted this new offering when it went online last night, which was designed by Tesla’s design studio in “in collaboration with Lost Surfboards and Matt “Mayhem” Biolos.” The product description says that the surfboard shares a finish with the company’s cars, and that it sports a top that’s been reinforced with carbon fiber. The description also says that the company’s “Model S, X and 3 can comfortably accommodate this surfboard on either the inside or outside of the vehicle.” The top and bottom of the surfboard also features the company’s logos.
Sadly, the product was only available in extremely limited quantities: 200 in all all made to order (shipping is expected to take place 2 to 10 weeks from now), and all have since sold out. However, if you’ve missed out, a handful of the orders have made their way onto eBay — but you’ll pay anywhere from $2000-$5000 for one of them. Tesla also isn’t the only car company to release such lifestyle accessories: MINI released a surfboard of its own a couple of years ago.
