The GroundSurf is an electric "surfboard" from Paris based Ratleads. It looks like a three-wheeled "skateboard", but whatever. They're due out early next year for around $2,000.

I considered saving for one before I realized I don't have very good balance. As a matter of fact I'm writing this from the kitchen floor because I fell over and threw my back out reaching for the Pop Tarts.
