17 Really Cool Alternatives To A Car

1. Surfwheel


Close your eyes and you’ll think you’re in a pipeline. Open them and watch out for that bus!!! Surfwheel gives you the sensation that you really are surfing or snowboarding. Its large wheel gives a smoooooth ride on city streets. Plus, you get an insane amount of freedom from this surprisingly rigid-looking board and wheel—the only moving part. To turn, you lean on the edge as you move, letting you carve the concrete around shoppers, buses and slow-moving bikes. Like surfing. (Except for the shoppers and buses.) You can get it up to 11 mph (18 km/h) and go about two miles on the battery. Whether you’re going to your awesome job, a party or to hang out with a friend, Surfwheel makes the commute more fun than the destination.

This bad boy costs a pretty penny and it will take you awhile to earn back your money. Like decades. Prices start at $999. However, there are less-expensive, equally fun alternatives. Read on…
