Tesla has a reputation for creating stuff with their name on it that you don’t really need. But this branded merchandise really takes the spot. Tesla is selling a $1500 surfboard with Tesla on it, according to TechCrunch.
The page where the board was listed has been taken offline after TechCrunch reported on it, but the description has been saved:
Designed by the Tesla Design Studio in collaboration with Lost Surfboards and Matt “Mayhem” Biolos, surfboard shaper for World Surf League Championship athletes. The Limited Edition Tesla Surfboard features a mix of the same high-quality matte and gloss finishes used on all our cars. The deck is reinforced with light-weight “Black Dart” carbon fiber, inspired by the interiors in our cars, and featuring tonal logos in subtle contrast gloss.
This is the actual board:
If you got all excited and expected some sort of cool technology on the boards, there’s actually none.
It’s surfboard, but prices much higher than your average board.
And all of the 200 $1500 boards have been sold. Keep an eye on Ebay though, if you really want one hanging on the wall of your hipster loft.
