Christmas lights, duct tape, and a bright idea...
It all began on the ASU campus one night in 2011, when Greg Rudolph spotted a skater who had duct-taped bulky Christmas lights to his skateboard. Inspired, he risked his personal savings to create the original fully-customizable LED underglow board lights, and the bright idea quickly took off!
Since then, Board Blazers have been sold in all 50 U.S. states and 50 countries around the world, and become the classic way to instantly customize your board. We pride ourselves on personal customer support, high-quality products, and a constant focus on what riders demand. Always innovating, expanding into new markets, and promoting skate culture, we continue to thrive on our early entrepreneurial spirit.
