Glow with the flow! Water sports company designs paddles fitted with LED lights to illuminate marine life under surface of the sea

Designers have come up with a bright idea - adding LED bulbs to paddles for night sports. US company Torch Paddles spent a year developing the idea, aimed at increasing sports and exploration after sunset. Bright spark David Swanson, designer of the paddles, revealed the paddles take longer to produce due to the technology.

Torch Paddles hope the innovative design of their hardware will encourage enthusiasts to take to the water after sunset. Torch Paddles y are already planning on growing the line of products by adding LEDs to SUP and canoe paddles. Whether it's to paddle board competitively, or simply for exploration purposes, the LEDs bring another dimension to adventure.

But they are already planning on growing the line of products by adding LEDs to SUP and canoe paddles. He said: 'Paddling helps you find the thing that you treasure, whether that's personal fitness, social bonding or bonding with nature. 'Getting out on the water after work, when the sun is dipping and the atmosphere is perfect, it's mesmerizing how the water appears when it's lit up from below.
Once you do it - you're hooked.' Faceted angles define the face of the blade; channeled to protect the LEDs and chisled to provide strength. Lights shine on just one side of the blade; lighting up everything you want to see in front of you, without blinding you or those behind you. The designer paddles allow the user to be the envy of those who you paddle past with a paddle that's built to light up your night. The paddles are currently on special offer sale of $232 (Around £150).
