It comes with no stringer, and it is nearly fully transparent. No, it is not a Tupperware container. It's the Jesus Board.
In a way, surfing is the art of walking on water. Surfers stand on their surfboards and glide across the surface of the water like pure magic.
So, surfing is an unforgettable, religious experience. But it could be better, especially if, somehow, we were allowed the chance to see through the surfboard.
Well, the dream is now a reality. And it comes with the perfect name - the Jesus Board. The secret developers used a super high-grade material to ensure the transparent surfboard won't break.
The Jesus Board shapers say that the new surf craft delivers a "smooth, fast and fun ride," despite 90 percent of the board being fully transparent.
Yes, a good wax job might diminish the joy of watching sharks swimming underneath your belly, but you will definitely see more blue water than in the past. And there's always the high-tech adhesive that works like wax.
The price - $749 - may be worth the experience. The company behind the Jesus Board will also market paddleboards and wakeboards.
