As teenagers, Dakota and Garret Porter came up with an idea that would soon flip the action sports industry on its head. The idea to put LED lights on our snowboards came to us one evening when we were about to drop in on a dark ski slope.
We wondered what it would feel like to shred through fresh powder or launch a hanging 360 with LED snowboards and dreamed about being the inventors of a product that would allow just that for every action sport enthusiast. That evening we made the biggest decision of our lives; to double-down and make that dream a reality. The next two years were spent on designing and engineering this product – now known worldwide as ActionGlow.
