This pro surfer wants to replace your golf cart with a motorised skateboard

The golf cart’s days may be numbered.

Meet the GolfBoard — part motorised skateboard, part caddy, part golf cart, and all quirk.

Much like a regular skateboard, it moves in the direction that the rider is leaning. A handheld remote controls speed (14 mph), and it can travel up to 18 miles on a single charge.

According to the company, the GolfBoard also dramatically increases the speed of play: it has been shown to cut the average 18-hole game down to 2 hours and 37 minutes.

The board was created by professional surfer Laird Hamilton and businessman Don Widman with the intention of drawing “the younger action sports crowd looking for adventure, excitement, and fun.”

The board has already caught on somewhat. Over 100 resorts and golf courses across America are using the device. More courses are likely to embrace the 114-pound Golfboard, as its impact on the green is 30% less than that of a traditional golf cart. It also requires less maintenance than a golf cart.

Individuals may purchase a Golfboard for approximately $US6,500, according to the Daily Mail.
