Elon Musk is one of the world’s richest men whose fantasy has no limits. The business of tech-mogul includes the production of surfboards, which were available through its online store this weekend for just $1,500, SkyNews said.
Tesla surfboards were produced in a limited quantity as a part of a promotional campaign Lost Surfboards rather than a revenue stream. Elon Musk’s electric car company offered unusual surfboards on Tesla’s online store over the weekend, the item had a significant premium price, Tesla briefly took to selling surfboards through its online store this weekend.
Tesla company said that all of its vehicles – the Model S, X and 3 – could “comfortably accommodate this surfboard on either the inside or outside of the vehicle”. Shortly after being advertised on Tesla’s site, the surfboards seemed to have sold out despite being listed at $1,500.
The Lost Surfboards campaign is alike earlier commercial moves of Elon Musk whose tunnel construction business The Boring Company sold 20,000 flamethrowers and 50,000 hats in a bid to raise equity. The tech mogul Elon Musk has a great sense of humour, undoubtedly. While Tesla cars’ sells are not too impressive, Musk is doing his best to satisfy the clients.
Market analyst Rajvindra Gill has claimed that 24% of orders for the Model 3 have been cancelled by impatient buyers, which Tesla has denied. However the difficulties facing the company have seen the chief executive announce that it was cutting 9% of its salaried staff worldwide.
Elon Musk, the 47-year-old SpaceX founder, is reportedly worth around $21bn, making him one of the 100 wealthiest persons in the world, although Tesla is yet to report a profit. In the first half of this year, the electric car company’s shares are trading down below $300 from a high of $370 in June.
