Because your surfboard needs LEDs

Hang 10 with illumination

Santa Cruz Light Wells

We've been somewhat critical of LED market saturation lately, and we're not apologizing for it either. But just to show that we're not totally unreasonable, we wholeheartedly endorse the idea behind "The Light Wave Surfboard" from Santa Cruz Light Wells.

Perhaps it's our California roots, but we're partial to anything that combines technology and surfing . And as Gizmodo notes, the Light Wave does just that, with battery-operated LEDs everywhere--running along the side, on the back and in a headlamp on the front "giving you just enough light to tell whether that next wave is worth catching or not."

Alas, the cost of this board is more than a bit out of reach, at $2,950. That wouldn't leave us nearly enough money for a " Shark Shield ."
