Looking for testers in the Southern Hemisphere - light up your board!

We have built a color-changing LED light system that mounts to any board (won't damage the board when it comes off) and really makes you stand out on the mountain! We need help testing from riders in the southern hemisphere (or anywhere with snow for the next couple months), since our snow up here in the northern hemisphere is pretty much gone. We have systems ready to ship out for testing.

If you ride regularly - any experience level is great - and are interested, please let us know soon. Take it from someone who's tested the lights - it's fun, and you will definitely stand out on the slopes! For video, check out the YouTube video (soon to be launched on Kickstarter). Thanks!

I watched the whole thing.

The first 2 minutes I thought he was joking and this was some kind of parody of another LED light snowboard video.

Skip to 6:15 to see bad riding. Then comes bad riding set to techno music.

This is fail and it reminds me of the neons on those fast and the furious cars people used to drive back in like 2001.

Why dear god why do people that are not snowboarders and obviously have no clue what you actually need for function create these horrible ideas. WHY? This is what I stay up at night having nightmares about!

Sounds like you're dying to test one of these bad boys out!

I'm pretty sure at least half of that stuff would fall off after a serious kicker or a cliff drop. That stuff might be ok for snow plowing down the bunny slope, but I don't think it would hold up to most advanced riders. Also, I don't think I'm alone here, but I'm not too keen on the idea of flying around on rainbows late at night, people might think less of me. Personally if visibility is a real issue I'd rather rock a head lamp, but I'm sure there's probably a market for this thing in Japan, they do have these: Japanese light trucks are blings of the road | Mail Online
