Surfboard with GPS and Radio

Illustration for article titled Surfboard with GPS and Radio

Realizing that surfers were way too cool for their own good, designer Marco Torres has designed a surfboard with the geek built in: GPS and radio. The concept is for separated surfers to locate one another with ease through two-way communication and a large onboard display (that we're guessing could point you to your partner), while keeping riders apprised to changes in currents and weather through constant updates and weather alerts.
