Tesla Instantly Sold Out of These $1,500 Surfboards
Boards boast "mix of same high-quality matte and gloss finish" used on Tesla cars.
Well he’s done it again. Musk’s company Tesla added surfboards to its gift shop on Saturday. The surfboards, which were briefly available for $1,500 before they sold out, were created through a collaboration between Tesla Design Studio and Lost Surfboards. According to Mashable, the surfboards feature a “mix of the same high-quality matte and gloss finished used on all (Tesla) cars.” The product’s description says that the surfboards were reinforced with carbon fiber “inspired by the interiors in Teslas.”
Tesla: We’re building a $35K car for the masses!
Tesla: Heh, JK, maybe someday. How ’bout our expensive cars?
Consumers: Hey 🙁
Tesla: Here’s a flamethrower!
Tesla: More expensive cars!
Tesla: A surfboard!
Consumers: COME ON!

In other news, Tesla dropped some new merch… It’s a limited edition surfboard. No, I don’t surf. But it’s red and matte black. So I snagged one ¯\_(ツ)_/¯https://t.co/2v2G7bnALC pic.twitter.com/aWuMYHK3JC

There was a wave of buyers for the 200 surfboards, wiping out the entire inventory. Anyone who ordered one can expect it to ship in 2-10 weeks. Some have made it to e-Bay, though with a cost of at least $4,000, according to Mashable.
