Lights, they are everywhere, so why not put them on your skateboard too! Previously it was time consuming and difficult to light up your skateboard. Besides, you would much rather be skateboarding than tinkering in your garage, right?! Yeah us too. So what we did is create and patent a kit to easily light up your skateboard without altering your skateboard in any way.
Third Kind™ skateboard lights were in invented by a skateboarder in Florida. In Florida much of the year is super hot and brutal to skate in, so we liked to skate at night when it is much cooler. Skating at night brought its own challenges though. Cars and them not seeing us was the biggest issue. It was always a little scary anytime a car was down the road from you or at an intersection in front of you. The question of “does this guy see me” was the primary concern; and the answer is typically, “no”. We wanted to be seen. What better way to be seen than to light up your skateboard! That proved to very difficult, as skaters we are amazingly good and destroying things. Our skateboards undergo a lot of punishment from airs, to clearing big gaps and stair sets, to rail slides and bomb drops. We had to design a kit to light up your skateboard that was small, lightweight and shred proof. That is exactly what we did!
Third Kind™ skate board lights are 100% created, owned and operated by skateboarders. Our skateboard lights feature military ruggedization, extreme water-resistance and micro USB recharging. There is no better way to light up your skateboard than with Third Kind™. We did all the hard work for you! So instead of messing with a soldering guns and power tools that should never be around a skateboard, do the responsible thing and light up your skateboard with Third Kind™. In just about 2 minutes you can be all hooked up and shredding the night in safety while also having the coolest looking spaceship skateboard ever!Guajataca Downhill 2015 Third Kind beyond : : Support Third Kind on Kickstarter »
