FACEBOOK founder Mark Zuckerberg spent Fourth of July riding in style.
While riding an electric surfboard, Zuckerberg posted a video of him on a lake while carrying an American flag.
What is the electric surfboard Mark Zuckerberg was riding on July 4th?
The Facebook CEO appeared to be riding the Foils efoil electric surfboard.
"The eFoil uses an advanced lithium-ion battery to power a silent electric motor that’s mounted on an all-carbon-fiber hydrofoil," according to the company website.
The surfboard is controlled by a wireless Bluetooth hand controller and it allows the user to ride for up to two hours.
The company also has an app available to download to register boards and hand controllers for updates.
There are four sizes available measuring from 4'2 to 5'9.
The company, Lift, was started in Puerto Rico back in 2010 and after years of research and design, the company was able to create the board.
"Today, we still stay true to our roots," the company states on their website. "We also continue to perfect our classic foil lineups, working with legendary board shapers and top carbon fiber suppliers to offer the highest-performance foil setups available on the market today."
How much does the electric surfboard cost?
The board the Zuckerberg appeared to be using costs $12,000.
Made up of carbon fiber, the new shape design offers the best combination of stability and performance according to their website.
"Lift eFoils are built in highly refined steel tools used to forge carbon fiber parts at extreme temperatures and heat, the same process used to create materials for race cars. We are the only eFoil company to use such advanced practices."
"The results? A unique marbled carbon fiber that is lighter and stronger than our previous models, and the lightest eFoils on the market today."
Has Mark Zuckerberg gone viral for surfing before?
This was not the first time Zuckerberg has gone viral for his surfing adventures.
In July 2020, Zuckerberg went viral for surfing in Hawaii with too much sunscreen on his face.
He was again using his $12,000 Efoil board.
The photos went viral after Twitter users turned them into memes mocking the sunscreen that could be seen all over his face.
"Was trying to think of who Mark Zuckerberg surfing reminded me of & then it came to be," one user wrote.
"No one has ever seen Mark Zuckerberg and the ghost from Spirited Away in the same room, just saying," another wrote.
