GolfBoard: Electric Skateboard Golf Kart
Looking to infuse the classic game of golf with a more adventurous form of transportation, the California based team behind GolfBoard have created the world’s first ever electric skateboard golf cart.
This 4 wheel drive skateboard has been outfitted with large, soft tires to traverse the green grass of the world’s most beautiful golf courses, without causing damage to the course itself. The GolfBoard is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack that will help the board climb the steepest hills with ease, even with heavy bags packed onto the vehicle. The battery pack needs just 2 hours of charge time for a 18 hole golf course, and can reach speeds of up to 12 miles per hour. You steer the GolfBoard just like a skateboard, by leaning from side to side (which also provides a nice core workout similar to snowboarding or surfing), while a handheld Bluetooth remote controls the acceleration, deceleration, and reverse mode of the board. Watch the video below, and “Surf the Earth” by supporting the project on Kickstarter.
