Prolight Boards saving lives by making riders more visible at night
Manufacturing LED Lit Professional Skateboards for visibility at dusk and night.
Hi, I’m Abraham Carattini, founder, inventor, visionary, patent holder, athelete and member of consortium comprised of inventors, NASA aerospace engineers, contract and patent attorneys, concept marketers and product development teams. Partnered with an engineering specialist and owner of LED lighting company.
In September 2008, Abraham Carattini, founder of PROLIGHT BOARDS, INC., was returning home late one night. While only a few blocks from his home, which is near a skating park, he pulled up to a red light to make a right turn. Thinking all was clear, he began the turn and almost hit a skater who seemed to appear out of nowhere. Abraham was shaken by the thought that the skater could have been seriously injured. He wondered how many other skaters had not been quite as fortunate. From this experience he came up with the idea of an LED lighted skateboard. Immediately, he began working on a prototype that would provide this safety feature without compromising the integrity of the board. After research revealed the breadth and scope of the skateboarding industry, Abraham realized that he had a solid, if not revolutionary, idea.
PROLIGHT BOARDS, INC. is an innovative sport-board lighting company that holds patented LED lighting technology for skateboards.

LED lighting and board design not only allows a skater distinctive individualization and self-expression, but introduces innovative concepts and new trends for a growing market. The technology also makes skaters more visible at night which decreases the likelihood of being hit by vehicles.
Once launched in the United States, ProLight plans to expand internationally, initially targeting Australia where night skateboarding has been banned due to accidents and injuries resulting from skaters not being visible at night. The law provides the perfect opportunity to highlight ProLight’s unique attributes that blend safety and creative inspiration to revolutionize the skateboarding industry.
Other Ways You Can Help
A lot of lives have been lost surrounding drivers and skateboarder related accidents at night. You, yourself might know someone who has been gravely injured or lost they’re life because a similar accident.
In 2011, there were 42 reported cases of skateboarders killed in California, Texas, and Virginia. The numbers continue to grow in 2012, and 2013 due to poor visibility. City ordinances are being placed, to prohibit skateboarders from riding after sunset. On April 15, 2013 a 12 year-old-girl was killed in Florida crossing a road at night and May 4, 2013 An 8-year-old Jefferson Hills boy died after being hit by a car Friday night. These numbers continue to soar.
