Dear fellow skaters,
My name is Thomas. Ive been skating for around half a year now and I still enjoy it very much. Lately however I started college. I had an idea to include my hobby of skating in some of the assignments I got there. This resulted in a skateboard with a LED strip. The ledstrip aims to simulate lightning. Because this is still a prototype, the leds arent integrated in the skateboard yet. This however is something I plan to do in the future. The leds will be mounted under a clouded epoxy layer, this way I can pour out a lightning shape and keep the rest wooden. Then I can paint a cool artwork around the epoxy to really make the artwork pop. To finish the assignment I would like to know opinions of skaters about this project. Do you like it? Love it? Or maybe hate it! And, would you buy such a deck for say, 20-30$ more? (assuming it lasts as long as “traditional” decks). Any reccomendations, ideas, tips and also critique is more than welcome. If you have any questions regarding this projects which you would like to know, do not hesitate to ask them.
I thank you for your time reading this and for your possible comment in the comment section.
