Thanks to the surfing superstar Laird Hamilton, you can take the board-riding lifestyle to the links with the innovative GolfBoard. Designed by Hamilton and Don Wildman, the founder of Bally Total Fitness, the electric-powered, four-wheeled board easily turns with the rider’s shifting body weight (as with surfing and snowboarding) and adds a dimension of balance to your overall game. Powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and 15,000-watt electronics, the GolfBoard can glide along at speeds of up to 14 mph—whether climbing up a hill’s steep face or dropping into the fairway—while your clubs stay securely fixed in front. The $6,500 GolfBoard is currently available at 79 courses around the country, with more in the lineup. At this rate, conventional golf carts might not stand a chance. (golfboard.com)
