Tribey electric trike can be ridden standing or recumbent

Really not sure if this is a bicycle or a skateboard ...

The wonderfully named Black Sparrow Industries has cooked up an electric vehicle with a difference: a tricycle that's ridden standing up. Robert Worobey designed the Tribey to appeal to surfers and snowboarders among others, and the designer claims that the vehicle is built to withstand serious abuse, including traversing 3-inch deep potholes. With the addition of a bolt-on kit, The Tribey can also be ridden from a recumbent position, making the Tribey a curious hybrid of recumbent trike and motorized skateboard.

I think one of these is more likely to appeal to surfers / snow boarders:

I saw something like that here a year or so back. I'd have loved to have seen it in action.
You wouldn't get me on it though.
