Tesla is known for being a sustainable energy company that manufactures high-tech electric cars, batteries, and solar roof solutions. But now, they're also selling surfboards.

Call it a complementary accessory - like a hat or a shirt - or just another smart publicity stunt. The truth is that Tesla hits summer on top of the wave.

Elon Musk teamed up with Matt Biolos' Lost Surfboards to create a limited edition of 200 boards. Each one is sold for $1,500. And no, it doesn't come with a built-in electric motor.

The American car company says that their new surf craft was specifically designed to fit inside or outside the Model S, X and 3 electric cars.

"The Tesla Surfboard features a deck reinforced with light-weight 'Black Dart' carbon fiber, inspired by the interiors in our cars and tonal logos in subtle contrast gloss," the company reveals.

The new stringerless Tesla Surfboard has an EPS core and uses a bio-based epoxy resin. It is ready for a thruster setup but doesn't come with a set of fins.

The 6'8'', 20.50'' 2.88'', rounded pin tail surfboard also features a low-entry rocker, thin rails, and forward thickness flow, resulting in a highly responsive surf machine.

This black-and-red beauty is wrapped with carbon fibers from nose to tail, and S-Glass fibers crosswise, from rail to rail. The bottom features two layers of 4oz cloth for maximum strength and dent resistance.
