Longboard LED Underglow

After using a blue LED strip in my laptop (see this post here) I had quite a bit left over and after seeing some cool longboard underglow pictures online I decided to try and build my own with a longboard I picked up at a yard sale for $15. The setup is super simple, I taped the LED strip to the bottom of the board, soldered a USB A plug to the end of the strip, and powered it using a USB power bank. Super convenient and easy to recharge. I don’t longboard a ton, but for the few times I took it out it worked super well. This project (and the longboard) was taken out of commission by a torrential downpour following an outdoor concert I took it to which flooded the power bank and ruined the wheel bearings. It’s barely noticeable during the day but looks awesome at night.
