There are some extensions on Amazon and elsewhere. You'll notice the number of users with issues in the reviews. As a temporary way to stay charged, I'd get the shortest, thickest one you can find, and consider charging at less than 24A to get some safety margin on the cable. It does not take a big flaw in the cable to make a big problem for you.

Not sure if you already found what you're looking for but here is a listing for a 14-30 extension cord. It's 30A, 250V, and 10 AWG. Looks like the 10 ft. is out of stock at the moment but there are units in stock for the 25 and 50 ft. The site also has 14-50 and 6-50 cords for EV charging. Hope that helps.
