Bill Stewart has been shaping and selling surfboards since the late 70’s and, like most surfers, it seems that Bill thinks there just aren’t enough daylight hours to enjoy his wave riding past time. To rectify this he’s created a one-of-a-kind board complete with headlights designed specifically for surfing at night. Dubbed the Night Stalker, Stewart’s creation is the first ever shortboard to pack LEDs embedded in the side fins and two 700 lumen headlights contained with the board’s transparent plexiglass nose to form a pair of surfboard headlights.
The headlights of the S-wing design board are adjustable and are powered by a pair of rechargeable batteries. It could make for some interesting extended exposure camera shots when he debuts the board at around 9pm Saturday, August 7th, at the San Clemente Pier in California.
The board will then be put on display at the ASR Trade Show at the San Diego Convention Center on August 13 and 14 at Billabong’s Art of Shaping display before being auctioned off on the 14th at 6.30pm with all proceeds going to the 2010 SIMA Humanitarian Fund. If you’re in the neighborhood and looking for a way to extend your surfing hours you might want to get along and make a bid.
