No matter how annoying Elon Musk is and how many people rush to say they hate him, he’s still doing fine. His penchant for backing the most random products is documented: flamethrowers, Boring Company hats, and more. This past Saturday his company Tesla, which specializes in making and selling cars, released surfboards that cost $1,500. Obviously, because they’re so necessary, they sold out immediately. Who could ever live without their Tesla surfboard?

There were only 200 of these surfboards available, which contain materials that appear on Tesla’s car and are all reinforced with carbon fiber. They also promise to transform you into a really amazing surfer, just because their base price is $1,500.

Even though a surfboard is amongst the most random products Tesla has ever produced, the company is known for selling different sorts of merchandise such as hats, shirts, and functioning cars for kids. Seriously.

According to The Verge, the board was designed in collaboration with Lost Surfboards and Matt Biolos, co-founder of Mayhem, a surfing company based in California. The surfboard’s description says that its designed to perfectly fit on the inside or outside of your Tesla Model S, X, and 3. Even though the surfboards were available temporarily, some have made their way onto eBay, with their prices ranging between $2,000 and $5,000.
