Why I'm On Board With GolfBoard
"I've been riding the world’s biggest waves my entire life, and played a major role in the evolution of surfboard design and new technologies.
During this time I helped advance surfing to include stand-up paddle boarding, tow-in surfing , and hydrofoil boarding. This unleashed a whole new market of surfers.
My passion for board sports advancements made me want to explore taking the surfing experience to land by joining forces with Don Wildman and the GolfBoard team.
GolfBoard is going to change the way golf is played forever and help attract millions of new fans to the game."
– Laird Hamilton, Big Wave Surfer and Serial Entrepreneur
Why I Invested In GolfBoard
"I have invested in many companies over my more than 60 years in business, but the $700,000 I have put in GolfBoard has been my most gratifying yet.
Surfing the earth from shot to shot gives you a whole different feeling. At 84 it makes me feel like I am 14 again. It keeps me flexible, and I have fun even when I don't play my best. This is definitely the future of getting around a course."
— Don Wildman, Key Investor & Co-Founder

The Beginning Story
Don Wildman, the founder of Bally Total Fitness, one of the largest fitness center chains in the world, along with surfing legend and board sports innovator Laird Hamilton, are the inspirations behind GolfBoard. Both avid entrepreneurs, passionate snowboarders and surfers, they realized the beautifully manicured landscapes of most golf courses offered the perfect terrain for an entirely new boarding experience. Their shared passion for snowboarding, surfing, and innovation inspired them to develop an entirely new sport, we call it 'GolfBoarding.
After being awarded Best New Product for Golf by the PGA of America in 2014, we formed a world-class management team to help make their dream a reality. With nearly 2,000 GolfBoards now sold to over 250 golf courses worldwide, generating close to $15,000,000 in revenue, the genius of their idea has been strongly verified.
With rapidly growing demand from over 34,000 golf courses globally, plus our ability to leverage our proprietary technology to quickly and effectively expand into the even larger adjacent commercial and recreational transportation markets, the growth potential for our boards is massive.
Going Beyond Golf
The ResortBoard offers users off-road and street use capabilities suitable for recreational and commercial applications. Appropriately named for its application as way to tour large resort properties or trail riding at ski resorts. With detachable carry baskets for moving merchandise, tools, and small equipment, the ResortBoard is also ideal for getting around residential communities, college campuses, large commercial properties, and industrial parks.
Designed for use on sand, gravel and loose dirt, the BeachBoard appeals to adventure sports enthusiasts looking for a high-performance experience. A stand-up alternative to ATVs, the BeachBoard expands our off-road capabilities to the beach, sand dunes, and desert trails.
Targeting popular waterfront vacation destinations worldwide, we expect BeachBoard rental centers to become an ongoing source of recurring revenue for the company.
Our SportsBoard offering incorporates a speed boost package increasing max speed in order to cater to golfers looking for an adventure-sports experience. A motor controller programming enhancement allows us to upgrade the GolfBoard performance to 'sport-mode'. As GolBoarders progress in ability, our SportsBoard offers a more advanced rider experience.
