Tesla made 200 limited-edition surfboards that cost R20,000 each — and they sold out in just one day
- Tesla just briefly had surfboards for sale on its website.
- Each surfboard cost $1,500, or about R20,000, and only 200 were put up for sale.
- Some can be found on eBay now — selling for between $2,000 and $5,000 each
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.
Even those who were able to snag one before they sold out will have to wait a bit — shipping is expected to take 10 weeks, as the surfboards are made to order.
And, if you happen to own one of Tesla's more road-friendly vehicles, the website states that "Model S, X and 3 can comfortably accommodate this surfboard on either the inside or outside of the vehicle."
Some of the surfboards appear to be up for sale on eBay, but with a drastic increase from the retail price — some are selling for more than $5,000. That's R65,000 – before shipping and import duties on your new surfboard.
