Kia and Antenna Take to the Surf

Where’s the board go?

by on Oct.27, 2011

Antenna magazine works with Kia to come up with the modern surf buggy.

We’re still waiting to see who comes up with the first dune buggy based on the latest generation of the Volkswagen Beetle.  In the meantime, we’ll be happy to head for the beach in this tricked-out 2012 Kia Rio5 pulled together by Antenna magazine – which will make its debut at the upcoming SEMA Show.

We’re not quite sure what the green stuff growing in the corner is, but we’re assuming it’s not medical marijuana.  As for the rest of the revisions, Antenna and Kia seem to believe that surfers are an organized bunch, incorporating some well-placed shelves and drawers for sneakers, swimsuits and, we’re assuming, wet suits.

It's Free!

What we don’t seem to see is a place for surfboards.  Perhaps the rack will be added in time for the SEMA event, which begins later this month in Las Vegas.

There’s a retro touch, the Antenna Kia Rio5 working in not only an old Atari game console but also a turntable.  Remember records?
