Night Surfing Breakthrough! Come See the Surfboard with Headlights!

So if you don’t already have enough reason to join us at the OC Art of Shaping this Friday and Saturday, then stop by at least to check out Bill Stewart’s latest creation the Night Stalker.

Bill's Night Stalker

The Night Stalker is a revolutionary new concept board specifically designed for night surfing. It has two top mounted 700 lumen headlights to light up your path and two LED embedded side fins to further flaunt your midnight maneuvers.

Also included are two hollow plexi-glass nose panels that allow the surfer to swivel the headlamps down and light up the water beneath…

…although I’m sure many of you OC surfers would opt out for that feature after seeing Chuck Patterson’s recent San-O Shark video..

No need to rely on full moons or pier lights with the Night Stalker

The system runs off two rechargeable batteries and could be all yours if you win the silent auction on the 14th!

This board will be on display at the ASR trade show on August 13 and 14 at Billabong’s Art of Shaping display. All the boards on display will be auctioned off on the 14th at 6:30pm. All proceeds from the auction will go to the 2010 SIMA Humanitarian Fund. You can own a nice little piece of surfing history and support a great cause!

New Zealand

Before working at SWELL I sold everything I owned and moved to New Zealand for 6 months.

This is some of the footage I brought back…
