After reporting on Garrett McNamara tackling huge Nazare on his custom Mercedes Surfboard back in February, it got me wondering what other high end Surfboards are out there and you may be surprised to know there a quite a few. One in particular has caught my eye and that is the Ferrari Scuderia Spider Surfboard, available to you for a staggering £1250.
The Ferrari emblazoned board is a 7ft 2” mini mal and carries the world famous prancing horse logo on the nose of the board. The Surfboard is finished with the Ferrari 16M Scuderia Spider graphics, and wouldn’t be the same without the Ferrari Red we have come to expect with all their best cars.
There is nothing revolutionary about the Surfboard itself, no unique rail design or funky streamline shape, in fact the construction is remarkably standard, and Ferrari even feel the need to explain what the wooden stringer is for. The fins are finished in carbon fibre and the board comes with its own custom bag, but what really makes the board so special (apart from the brand) is the fact it is only available in a limited run of 499, much like the GT car.
So possibly only a board for serious Ferrari fan or petrol head, or maybe as a guaranteed talking point on a wall, the Scuderia Spider certainly offers nothing extra in terms of performance or design and carries such a high price tag. There are sure to be some out there who can afford such luxuries, but would you ever consider parting with that kind of money to own such an iconic branded board?
