Skateboarding is quite popular where I’m from. I’ve never really been interested in it, and I’m not just saying that because I can’t stay on one for more than a minute or so. It’s just that I see people skating all the time, and they don’t seem to be having much fun. Granted, they’re practicing, it’s just that they seem to practice on every public place that has stairs or something they can jump off of. But watching someone (unsuccessfully) attempt to flip their board over half a dozen times while I’m waiting on the light to turn green doesn’t make me want to run out and pick one up.
I do admit that if I came across some guy skating on a board with neon lights, I’d probably stop and watch him, at least for a few minutes. There’s just something about neon LEDs that just seems hypnotic in certain situations. These Photon Light Boards would definitely create that atmosphere. Each board is highly customizable with around 30 LED lights. The boards themselves will cost you between $110 and $120, while the whole setup is around $200.
