Awesome Inventions of Yesteryear (part 2)

Surf Board with propeller!

The madness continues!  However, this particular madness is pretty awesome.  Ladies and gentlemen, the motorized surfboard.  (ridden by its inventor, Joe Gilpin)

Why didn’t this 1948 invention catch on?  You’ve probably seen a motorized skateboard or two if you live in a decent sized city.  But where’s my motorized surfboard?  Makes you want to commute to work across a pond or something.  Probably not the most useful thing if you run into waves.  Especially if you’re wearing a suit.

Ingenuity, folks!
