Tesla's latest product is a $1,500 surfboard, and it's already sold out

Most boards made by Lost Surfboards sell for about Dollars 700-800 but the Tesla board is clearly for the higher class of customers.

Much like Elon Musk's Boring Company Flamethrower, which launched back in January, this new product idea may seem like a joke at first.

The run of 200 limited edition surfboards is unlikely to contribute to Tesla's revenues.

According to Tesla's description of the surface, "Designed by the Tesla Design Studio in collaboration with Lost Surfboards and Matt "Mayhem" Biolos, surfboard shaper for World Surf League Championship athletes". According to the product page, the Tesla surfboard features the same paint finishes as Tesla's vehicles and will fit in the company's Model S, Model X, and Model 3 vehicles.

The carbon-fibre surfboards came in one style, red and black, which matches the liveries found on Tesla's cars - the same matte and gloss paints were used. You could go surfing on a board that has the same label. According to the surfboard store page, the products feature "Black Dart" carbon fiber construction, created to give the boards more durability while their users catch waves. The company collaborated with Lost Surfboards, and is selling a $1,500 surfboard of its own, TechCrunch reported Saturday. However, you may still be able to get one if you're willing to shell out several times the sticker price. It will take between two to 10 weeks for those who placed orders to receive their purchases.

That hasn't stopped buyers from putting their boards for sale on eBay.
