So I recently got into skateboarding and bought myself a skateboard. Having an obsession with LED's and pretty lights I decided that it would be awesome if my skateboard lit up and illuminated the ground below where I'm skating. I decided to use silicon to glue some LED strips to the bottom of my board. I used silicon in case I have the need to remove the LED to try prevent damage to the paint... possibly a little overboard on the quantity.
I put 2 strips of the LED's along the base of the board and used a 9v battery for testing. To provide a more permanent power supply I opted for 8AA batteries providing 12 vaults. I encased these under the board along with a simple switch to join/break the circuit.
