Laird Hamilton, eight-year-old Jett Prefontaine, and members of the Silicon Beach Surfers Club have tested and approved the new Land Rover Discovery with Discovery Dynamic Design Pack, which made its debut in the United States at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 16th.
Hamilton and Prefontaine took the new Land Rover Discovery for a spin to Point Mugu in Malibu, California. While surfing, Hamilton was able to access Land Rover’s Intelligent Seat Fold and reconfigure the seats of the Discovery via the InControl Remote app on his smart phone; similar to Bear Grylls reconfigured the seats while skydiving.
“The new Land Rover Discover could have been made as the ultimate surfer’s SUV,” Hamilton gushes, “Its specially-designed Aqua Rack makes it easy to transport your boards, the Powered Inner Tailgate is the perfect place to sit in shelter from the elements and the Activity Key is awesome – I wish I’d had one years ago.”
“You can even adjust the vehicle from the surf! Remotely rearranging the seats to make space for your friends, or activating the climate control to cool the vehicle before you catch the last wave of the day, has to be the ultimate in convenience.”
Hamilton and Prefontaine used the Aqua Rack, specially-designed for the Land Rover Discovery, to carry and transport their surfboards.
The Discovery Dynamic Design Pack incorporates the Land Rover Discovery’s all-terrain capability with unprecedented versatility and all-new exterior. The pack is available on the HSE and HSE Luxury models.
The Activity Key feature is a waterproof wristband that allows you to lock and unlock your vehicle so you do not have to carry the conventional key fob. Furthermore, the Activity Key will disable the key fob so it can be left safely inside the vehicle. The wristband is waterproof up to 98 feet and withstands temperatures from -58 degrees to 125 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Discovery Dynamic Design Pack was definitely built with the consumer in mind. Land Rover continues to push the limits and continues to produce vehicles that better serve their consumers’ lifestyles.
