I posted on the other post about how to do the youtube link right...

Awesome video. So do you use any lights on the board/your helmet/head or solely rely on your vision? I'd think I'd want some of the proper colored LED flashlights to light up the ground some, either attached to board or myself, so I didn't hit a pothole or the like.

cool man, i love night sessions!

i've had 100's of night sessions, loving the solitude. like i always say for night riding the fewer lights the better. i did use some finger lights , but when the batteries fail never replaced.

after a hot summer day riding on the water , i would go back and the cool night was so nice, beautiful clear sky, man...and all the meteors holy crap!

nice man , way to get out and get some !

Actually your eyes get accustomed to the dark ad can see pretty well. Especially if the moon is out. I did take a few flashlights and head mounted lights but didn't need them except to set up the kite or to allow the camera to focus better.

moonshine and wind chimes...some messages you just can't ignore.

Nice. I would have assumed lights might be needed, I've done night-time with snow if the moon is full enough, as it reflects a lot of light, but on dry land, I worry about rough spots, none of my normal kite spots are "clear" enough that I'd feel safe. Too much risk of a sprinkler head that didn't pop down or a new divot or forgotten water bottle.
