The golf industry may be home to some of the greatest product development in the consumer market, outside of the tech industry.

Golfers go absolutely nuts over new products that could potentially make their swing a little prettier, with the hope of shaving a few strokes off the scorecard.

And while much attention has been focused in the industry on the development of (often pretty hokey) training systems and aids, the way golfers get around the course hasn’t changed all that much. Walk or ride?

That’s changed now, with the introduction of the GolfBoard, developed in Hawaii by a crew of snowboarders, surfers and tech entrepreneurs.

Check out the video below and see what it’s all about. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

    It looks like a fun idea and would probably work on a flat course, but I could see serious problems on a heavily sloped course where it is necessary to go across the slope without falling over sideways.
