Around the time of the late 90s Kelly Slates and Rob Machado decided to pick up a golf club and all of a sudden the only thing every wave rider in town wanted to do was hit balls. That’s right, surfing and golf go way back and today it often feels like three quarters of the Top 34 can’t get out of the water fast enough to get back on the 9-hole pitch n’ putt.
Well, in a new awesome surf/golf development you can now do both at the same time. Endorsed by none other than Kauai big wave hellman and innovator Laird Hamilton, say hello to the golfboard! Seriously, why go the golf buggy option when you can surf the turf and get barrelled through the bunker sections?
