Mark Zuckerberg celebrates 37th birthday by showing off his surfing skills on $12K motorized board

Mark Zuckerberg has showed showed off his surfing skills while celebrating his 37th birthday in Hawaii. 

The Facebook founder took to the high seas on his beloved $12,000 motorized Efoil board  Friday to mark the milestone, and later shared a video of the event on his social media account. 

The 60-second clip shows the billionaire cruising over the waves while wearing a black wetsuit and a helmet. 

He added The White Stripes' song 'I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself' as a backing track to the video and tagged pro surfer Kai Lenny in the caption. 

'Kai Lenny am I doing this right?' Zuckerberg humorously wrote. 

Last month it was reported that Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan have almost doubled the size of their estate in Hawaii after purchasing a 600 acre plot of land for $53 million. 

The property, which includes the spectacular Larsen's Beach, was bought from a nonprofit organization established by a local family, whose roots go back to the days of the Hawaiian kingdom. 

Zuckerberg began buying up land on the island of Kauai back in September 2014,  with the purchase of a 357-acre estate. 

They later bought another 384 acres from the late Hawaii auto dealer James Pflueger. 

The billionaire also acquired titles to dozens of smaller lots within the larger parcels that were known as 'Kuleana Lands' - land granted to Kanaka Maoli tenant farmers between 1850 and 1855.

Zuckerberg was accused by some of trying to force the tenant farmers from their historic plots, and in 2017 he apologized in the local newspaper, explaining that he was abandoning his quiet title actions and would 'work together with the community on a new approach'.

A petition was begun last year to 'stop Mark Zuckerberg from colonizing Kauai', and now has more than a million signatures.

The family first bought the Kahu'aina Plantation followed by the Pila'a Beach plot. They have now acquired a new area
