Nocqua Offers LED Lighting for Paddleboarders
US water sports accessories company Nocqua have created an LED lighting system for paddleboards, allowing enthusiasts to enjoy the fast-growing sport against the night sky.
The 2000 LED lighting system attaches to the underside of the board and creates a 360-degree light field that allows the paddler to see in all directions at night time. The system includes 2 waterproof LED light bars, each containing 72 LEDs and together emitting more than 2,000 lumens.
Power comes from a rechargeable, water-resistant lithium-ion battery, which provides up to two hours of run time. An available power switch glows different colours to let the paddler know how much battery power is left and offers an SOS safety strobe setting.
"The Nocqua 2000 LED lighting system reveals the wonders of being on the water at night in a way that simply cannot be experienced in the daylight hours," Nocqua explains on its website.
"The thrill of being on the water under the stars, the connection with marine life below and a viewing experience like never before.”
The Nocqua 2000 system, which can also be fitted onto kayaks and canoes, is available online at Bocqua, as well as from a large number of dealers around the US. It retails for $399.99, with extra batteries costing $59.99.
