What If We Could Reinvent Personal Transportation?

"My father, who founded Bally Total Fitness, one of the largest fitness center chains in the world, is the inspiration behind GolfBoard. He is an avid entrepreneur, passionate golfer, snowboarder and surfer. His passion for snowboarding, surfing and golf, inspired him to develop an entirely new way to experience the terrain of a golf course, providing riders the same feeling as carving the slopes or surfing the ocean. 


After being awarded Best New Product by the PGA of America in 2014, we formed a world-class management team to help make his dream a reality. With nearly 2,000 GolfBoards now sold to over 250 golf courses worldwide, generating close to $10,000,000 in revenue, the genius of his idea has been strongly verified.


With rapidly growing demand from over 34,000 golf courses globally, plus our ability to leverage our proprietary technology to quickly and effectively expand into the adjacent commercial and recreational transportation markets, the growth potential for our boards is massive.

Why GolfBoard

Surfer / Entrepreneur Laird Hamilton

"I've been riding the world’s biggest waves my entire life, and played a major role in the evolution of surfboard design and new technologies. During this time I helped advance surfing to include stand-up paddle boarding, tow in surfing , and hydrofoil boarding. This unleashed a whole new market of surfers. My passion for board sports advancements made me want to explore taking the surfing experience to land by. GolfBoard is going to change the way golf is played forever and help attract millions of new fans to the game" -Laird Hamilton, Big Wave Surfer and Serial Entrepreneur

GolfBoard Is Award-Winning and Patent Pending

GolfBoard has won many accolades from the golf industry. We are the only US company to manufacture a single passenger golf vehicle which lets players stay upright and active between shots. The company has filed a patent for three key elements of the GolfBoard that will allow us to offer a unique and revolutionary new vehicle that will increase golf course profitability, because it will increase the number of rounds played, as well as expand the golf market with millions of new players.

Watch the GolfBoard in Action!

Our Motors Are Quiet yet Fast

How It Works

The GolfBoard has been designed for up to 5 years of daily operation, with minimal maintenance required. The battery has up to an 18 mile range and takes about 2 hours for a full charge.

GolfBoard Can Carry up to 300 lbs at up to 12.5 mph

The GolfBoard contains two motors, fully enclosed and highly water resistant. The board has four wheel drive that can climb nearly any kind of slope. The onboard computer is programmed to control the acceleration and deceleration while providing a smooth and safe ride. The replaceable state of the art lithium ion battery requires zero maintenance and is good for 1,000 charges or up to 5 years.

How to Ride

The GolfBoard has been designed to give the rider the sensation of surfing. The board can be controlled with one hand or two hands. Press the thumb throttle to start the board, and the more you press the faster it goes. Release the button to brake and come to a smooth stop. A rear axle parking brake is automatically engaged once stopped to keep the board in place. Just lean your body weight left or right to turn.

Safety

The GolfBoard is highly stable and easy to use due to its low center-of-gravity, automatic braking system and integrated stability bar. The GolfBoard was designed for optimal safety. No insurance claims resulting from injury or property damage with hundreds of thousands of rounds played.

Better for the Grass

GolfBoard's weight is 65% less compared to golf carts delivering 30% less turf impact. This provides meaningful reductions in ongoing course maintenance and costs, plus enables the GolfBoard to go where golf carts can't, including tee boxes and the fridge of the green.

GolfBoard Is A Comfortable Ride

This Spring Deck technology gives the GolfBoard amazing suspension and flex, while still allowing for a secure and rigid mounting location for our durable non-skid rhino liner deck.

2019 Focus On Creating High Margin Recurring Revenue and Increasing Market Penetration

2 months ago

Dear Investor,

GolfBoard has reopened its 506c capital raise and is now in “live offering mode”. We are seeking funding to build an online reservation and billing system and to grow our Company-owned fleet of boards, creating high margin recurring revenue and rapidly increasing our market penetration. Our reservation and billing system will allow us to eliminate the upfront fee charged to courses and resorts, dramatically improving course and resort adoption while generating a profitable stream of recurring revenue for the Company.

GolfBoard continues to invest, innovate, and expand our golf offerings, recently rolling out a new high performance and more versatile GolfBoard Pro. The GolfBoard Pro has stronger suspension plates, plus larger 13 by 5-inch wheels for greater clearance and traction, allowing the board to climb curbs and be used on more challenging terrain. Courses and resorts find the GolfBoard Pro can be used for golf as well as sightseeing and tours, expanding the rental audience.

BeachBoard . Dual-Bag Board . ResortBoard . GolfBoard . GolfBoard Pro

The Company has also recently introduced a new Dual-Bag Board for courses with caddy programs. The Dual-Bag Board makes caddying far more efficient and eliminates the physical demands associated with caddies having to carry multiple bags. Pebble Beach has had highly favorable results in testing our new Dual-Bag Board at The Links at Spanish Bay and at Spyglass Hill Golf Course. Our Dual-Bag Board opens an entirely new application, and will greatly broaden the visibility of our products on world class courses.

Dual-Bag Board in Test at The Links at Spanish Bay

Concurrently, we are leveraging our patented technology, superior customer experience and global brand awareness to drive our ResortBoard offering. Positioned to capitalize on the rapidly growing interest in alternative transportation devices, our 4-wheel drive ResortBoard is a safer, more durable, and more capable alternative to Segways and electric scooters. We have seen growing interest by resorts to purchase fleets of ResortBoards for sightseeing, as well as ski resorts to offer a unique alternative to their active customers.

ResortBoard Tour Waterville Valley Resort

Our new BeachBoard is a highly differentiated product. Equipped with high-profile balloon tires, the BeachBoard is capable of traversing soft, sandy terrain. This summer, our BeachBoard rental center at Wildwood Beach, NJ, generated as many as 40 rentals an hour, delighting customers who enjoyed “Surfing the Earth” in a designated terrain park designed specifically for BeachBoarding. The Wildwood Beach Patrol also found the BeachBoard to be a quiet and more environmentally friendly alternative to ATVs.

BeachBoard Rental Center Wildwood Beach, NJ

As our product development ambitions expand, so does the reach of our digital marketing, allowing us to spread our GolfBoard story while accessing new revenue streams. With over 1 million unique visitors to GolfBoard.com, and nearly 300 courses offering GolfBoard, we plan to launch an online reservation and billing system to generate recurring revenues through our growing rental fleet. Such digital services enable us to capitalize on our market awareness and drive incremental profits for the business and for our partners, all while providing a more seamless user experience for our riders.

Four years in, we are still at the early stages of our business story. We greatly appreciate the support of our current investors as well as our growing investor community in joining our mission to revolutionize personal transportation.

Thanks,

John Wildman

2017 annual report and financial disclosures

7 months ago

To Our Shareholders and Prospective Investors,

 Sol Boards Inc., the parent company of GolfBoard (ResortBoard and BeachBoard), has filed its 2017 annual report and financial disclosures with the SEC. 

 You will see from our filing that, over the past 12 months, our team has achieved some significant milestones in advancing our “Surf the Earth” mantra. We have taken what was a unique and fresh idea and have now shipped over 2,500 boards to approximately 300 courses and resorts worldwide, generating over $12M in total revenue, which we believe only scratches the surface of the potential for GolfBoard and our adjacent verticals. The coast-to-coast adoption of GolfBoard has led our direct competitors to largely retreat from the US market, and GolfBoard has become a global brand with distribution in seven international markets.

 Our ResortBoard and BeachBoard offerings will allow us to expand beyond golf. In 2017, we successfully beta-tested our ResortBoard at several resorts on the east coast and expect even boarder adoption of our ResortBoard offering in 2018, as we target the large sightseeing and tourism markets. Our BeachBoard prototypes have also been in beta-tests for many months and we plan to test BeachBoard rental centers this summer. Both new products are higher-performance, higher-margin offerings, with recurring revenue potential. 

 In 2017 we battled headwinds related to key component shortages (mainly our custom-built lithium-ion battery pack) during our peak selling season, followed by severe hurricanes in Texas and Florida. As such, while we had a strong first quarter, we fell short of our full year 2017 sales projection. However, we remain confident in our team’s ability to execute against our business plan. The growing interest by individual GolfBoard buyers, along with increased direct-to-consumer marketing activity in collaboration with golf course management companies, represent potentially significant growth verticals. At the same time, we have also taken steps to reduce our manufacturing costs and streamline operations.

 Sol Boards Inc. is still a start-up with upside potential, and we continue to attract strong investor interest. Our recent ‘Test-the-Waters’ campaign (https://www.solboard.com/investors/) received indications of interest for another $1M+ in potential new equity investment. The combination of growing penetration of the golf marketplace, including an ever-growing database of GolfBoard users (now exceeding 100,000 registered riders), and high-potential new product offerings (with lower production costs and improving margins), ensures the building blocks are in place for growth and profitability in the years ahead.

 We are greatly appreciative of the 1,000+ individual investors who have believed in us through our journey. Thank you for your continued support.

10 months ago

GolfBoard continues to grow its worldwide footprint, with January new board orders from its distributors in both Spain (http://golfboardiberia.com/) and France (https://www.golfboard.fr/).

GolfBoard Attracts Thousands at Demo Day & Proves Popularity at 2018 PGA Merchandise Show

10 months ago

GolfBoard is proud to report that the Company had a very favorable response to its product offerings at last week’s PGA Merchandise show. Once again, GolfBoard demonstrated its popularity, with over 1,000 test rides at Demo day, and nearly 400 board orders over the following 3 days. At this year's PGA show over 90% of new clients decided to immediately purchase or lease, with less than 10% first opting for our GolfBoard trial or rental program. The typical order also increased from 4 boards to 8 or 12, further demonstrating GolfBoard's growing popularity.

At this year’s PGA show there where GolfBoard orders from many of the largest course management companies, such as Kemper Sports, Greenway Golf, Pebble Beach Company, and Discovery Land Company, just to name a few. We also had multiple orders for the Company's new ResortBoard and BeachBoard offerings. With the proven popularity of GolfBoard, many resorts are now embracing the Company's new products as a way to attract more guests and drive additional rental revenue.

With nearly 400 new GolfBoard orders, plus hundreds more already in our sales pipeline, now is a good time to invest. These last few days of January are the final opportunity to invest in Sol Boards, Inc. at $1.25 per share.

GOLFBOARD FINALIZES $1,000,000+ FINANCING AGREEMENT (Press Release)

over 1 year ago

Sol Boards, Inc. of Bend, Oregon, has entered into a long-term financing agreement with Golf Capital Group (GCG) of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to fund the rapid expansion of the Company’s managed fleet rental program. Through its new relationship with GCG, Sol Boards will significantly increase the size of its company-owned demo fleet from approximately 100 boards today to as many as 400 boards by year-end 2017.

GolfBoard has already deployed over 2,000 boards to over 250 courses worldwide. Many of these courses initially participate in a 60-day GolfBoard trial prior to making the decision to lease or purchase. Consequently, this potential 300% increase in company owned trial boards is expected to substantially increase the volume of follow-on purchases in the years ahead.

This new rental fleet financing agreement with GCG will also help accelerate the rapid adoption of the company’s new ResortBoard offering. By leveraging GolfBoard’s proprietary technology, the company expects to quickly penetrate the $15BN worldwide electric scooter marketplace.

The massive size of this adjacent market creates the potential for popularity of the Company’s new ResortBoard offering to eventually exceed its already highly successful GolfBoard.

“This multi-year financing agreement with Golf Capital Group will enable the company to accelerate an important growth engine by allowing significantly more golf courses and resorts to try our popular new offering,” said John Wildman, GolfBoard Chairman and CEO. “Our company’s growing demo fleet will also provide high-margin recurring revenue, which we expect to contribute millions of dollars to the company’s bottom line over the next few years.”

As part of this financing agreement, Golf Capital Group has the non-exclusive rights to develop ResortBoard rental centers throughout the southeast US. These “Surf the Earth” shops in Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, and other southeast states will provide a valuable brick and mortar footprint, as well as further accelerate the company’s rapid growth.

Sol Boards, Inc. is now completing a second-round equity capital raise through its ongoing 506(c) offering which is being extended through Friday, April 7, 2017. The company has already raised approximately $1.6M so far this year, and anticipates reaching $2M by the close of the current offering.

Countersigned Subscription Agreement

over 1 year ago

To all GolfBoard shareholders who invested in our recent Title III offering (which closed January 31st, 2017). Please beware that every investor in our Title III offering will receive an email from StartEngine with a countersigned subscription agreement (as proof of purchase) once the final funds are disbursed to our Company. There is still one final disbursement from the escrow account to Golfboard, which is scheduled to be released on April 14th, after which the investor list will be final and subscription agreements distributed.

Separately, please be aware that our current follow-on 506 (c) offering which closes Friday, March 31st is now over 50% subscribed, with over $500,000 committed. Additionally, our GolfBoard Sr. Team will be purchasing approximately another $200,000 of stock at the same $1.25 per share as all other investors though this offering. With over $150,000 raised in just the last few days, we are very optimistic the 800,000 shares of stock available through this offering will be fully subscribed by month end (please share the GolfBoard investment link below with other potential investors). 

Once again, this is the final opportunity to purchase Sol Boards stock at the current $9M company valuation. We expect to complete a Title IV crowdfunding offering later this year at a $20M valuation, with a corresponding stock price of over $2.00 per share. So anyone that invests today can be part of an extremely exciting and revolutionary new product offering with strong potential for the growing value of their investment.

GolfBoard Still Accepting Investment

almost 2 years ago

Thank you so very much to everyone who has supported our highly successful crowdfunding capital raise. While we have now exceeded the $1M limit for a Title III capital raise,  please feel free to continue to purchase shares and refer others. It is likely that some early investors will “fall out”, and anyone who subscribes now will be given preferential treatment to these reassigned initial shares.

Please note that when the company moves forward with a Title IV raise, those investors who have committed funds now (or who make follow-on investments) and oversubscribe to our current Title III offering, will be given a preferential reservation to participate in our follow-on offering. Please also note, that while the price per share will likely remain unchanged, when the company does a follow-on Title IV offering, the minimum investment limit will be raised to at least $500 (up from $125).

Once again, thank you to everyone who has supported our successful crowdfunding capital raise. The combination of last week’s record sales of $2.5M+ of new GolfBoard and ResortBoard orders, along with exceeding our target of $1M in new equity capital raised, contributed to a very rewarding week for our management team and sets the stage for highly successful 2017.

Let's keep revolutionizing personal transportation together!

GolfBoard Crowdfunding Capital Raise Exceeds $750K

almost 2 years ago

 

With just 5 days left to invest in GolfBoard, interest has reached an all-time high with over $750,000 raised, and $220,000 committed in just one day. At the current pace of investment, the maximum allowed for a Title III raise of $1 million is on track to be reached within the next 48 hours. Anyone looking to participate in this high-potential offering should look to immediately make their GolfBoard investment before our offering closes.

As a further upside to the GolfBoard opportunity, all shareholders will benefit from the growing interest in our new ResortBoard offering. At day 2 of the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, ResortBoard sales were strong, with multiple purchases of our new all-terrain board by both commercial and personal use clients.  It is clear that a wide variety of adjacent industry clients are quickly embracing our new ResortBoard model as an extension of the Surf the Earth experience beyond golf, It is reasonable to expect our new ResortBoard offering will eventually exceed GolfBoard sales, as the ATV market is a multi-billion dollar industry for which we are well-positioned to quickly gain market share.

Through a combination of GolfBoard and ResortBoard orders, the company has already generated over $2.2 million in potential revenue in just the first 2 days of the PGA show. With the added benefit of high-visibility media attention through such platforms as yahoo.com, combined with PGA Show coverage, investor interest in becoming a GolfBoard shareholder will certainly continue to grow.

Thank you for the support, and please share the GolfBoard investment opportuity with your personal network to help ensure we fully subscribe our crowdfunding capital raise

almost 2 years ago

Positioned as the “Industry’s First Innovation in 85 years” by Pre-IPO Insider Joseph Hogue, GolfBoard is predicted to be a startup with no competition, that “can take fast market share in a multi-billion dollar industry…  that’s going to reward early investors.”

In an article posted at Nasdaq.com on January 19th, the GolfBoard equity crowdfunding raise is touted as being a similar opportunity to Facebook and Apple, with a chance to “get a piece of the action as a pre-IPO investor in a late-stage company with strong sales and already proven demand." GolfBoard is, "one of the first innovations in its market in almost a century."

GolfBoard Projecting 350% International Growth

almost 2 years ago

Worldwide interest in GolfBoard continues to grow exponentially, generating a cascade of global orders from international markets such as Canada, Mexico, Australia, Indonesia, Spain, Germany, the Dominican Republic, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom. As GolfBoard international distributors respond to ever increasing demand to purchase, lease and rent GolfBoards worldwide, overseas orders are projected to grow by more than 350% in 2017. This strong international GolfBoard sales growth represents upside to the company’s business plan, and yet even greater return on investment to its shareholders.

The size of the international marketplace for GolfBoard exceeds the United States, with an estimated 20,000+ golf courses outside the US. The positive reviews and strong traction GolfBoard is now gaining in foreign markets (including the 2016 Rider Cup Desert Challenge in Abu Dhabi) indicates that GolfBoarding has the potential to become a broadly adopted global offering and change the game worldwide.

In order to fully leverage the compounding international demand for GolfBoard, Sol Boards, Inc., makers of the GolfBoard, has promotion of Todd Lyon to the position of International Sales Director.  Mr. Lyon has been with GolfBoard since 2015, holding the previous position of Business Development Manager.   With a highly successful track record of developing key clients for GolfBoard, both domestically and abroad, plus 30+ years of experience in golf, Mr. Lyon is perfectly positioned to direct the duties related to the company’s international expansion and establishment of global distributions channel.

“It’s very exciting to be a part of such a game-changing product, particularly when GolfBoard worldwide demand and global awareness is so high.  We’re expecting over 350% growth in our International markets in 2017,” said Lyon. “Beginning with a large GolfBoard order expected to ship into the EU before the end of January”.
