Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is known for posting some unusual stunts, and his latest one has him riding an electric surfboard to celebrate Independence Day, all the while holding an American flag. A fitting theme song, John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads”, played in the background. For those who want their own electric surfboard, it’s made by Lift Foils and will set you back around $12,000 USD. Read more for the video and additional information.
Called the LIFT3, these electric surfboards are made from a proprietary carbon fiber blend engineered specifically for eFoil performance. It features an upgraded electronics and propulsion system designed for enhanced speed and efficiency. It’s electric-powered and can hit a top ride speed of 35mph, offering the longest-lasting battery life of 2-hours on a single charge.
Even though 2020 brought a lot of uncertainty, our eFoils continued to create exceptional experiences for riders everywhere, as people were able to get out there to explore and enjoy nature while staying socially distant. We’re constantly evolving and innovating, and we’re ecstatic about bringing the LIFT3 to market. Our most advanced and sophisticated eFoil yet gives our community of fans and riders around the world more choices to carve out unique adventures,” said Lift Founder and CEO.
