Those who find golf carts too boring will be all about the GolfBoard. This electric board allows you to figuratively surf your way from hole to hole. The board is powered by electricity and can hit speeds of up to 12 mph. Your speed and braking are controlled by a Bluetooth remote and you steer by leaning. The GolfBoard can be ridden with a bag mount and handle or without one.

The GolfBoard reportedly has a minimum range of 18 holes per charge and can be fully charged in two hours. The creators are hoping to appeal to the younger generation of golfers and have gotten pro surfer Laird Hamilton to join the GolfBoard team. The company is currently seeking $100,000 on Kickstarter to help fund the project. Stats for Surfer-Friendly Golf Carts Trending: Older & Warm
