File this under ‘Things You Must Do.’ Miami-based company NightSUP has been putting a bright new twist on stand up paddleboarding, making boards surrounded by a bright strip of LED lights. Originally designed to enhance safety on night paddles, the feature also gives you a fantastic view of the nighttime sea floor and its wildlife.

Ready to go? The company already has boards splashing around a number of Florida tour locations, but they also sell finished boards to the public and retrofit existing boards with a fiberglassed outside rail to enclose the lighting. Surrounded by about 40 feet of lights, the boards almost look like they’re levitating.
