LEDs on Your Paddleboard?

LED lights have become a common addition to the bottoms of yachts, but Nocqua, a North Carolina-based water sports accessories company has a line of lights you can add to your paddleboards. The 2000 LED lighting system includes two LED light bars, each containing 72 lights that together emit more than 2,000 lumens. When activated, the lights create a 360-degree light field that gives you a view of the nighttime underwater world, a view that is especially interesting when riding a clear paddleboard. Powered by a water-resistant lithium-ion battery, the 2000 LED system also has an optional power switch that can change the color of the lights to let the user know how much battery life is left. The optional switch also includes a setting for an SOS strobe effect. The Nocqua LED system can also be fitted to kayaks and canoes and retails for $399.99 with extra batteries at $59.99.
