    I just got back from Lake Powell with the Liquid Lumens guys and had the chance to surf with their new Top-Side Lights. Those things are awesome! It's an above water strip LED that mounts above the swim deck. We were on their G23 that had those plus their Underwater Lights on it too. By far the best night-surfing setup I've ever seen. This is one of their photos from the trip. The picture doesn't even do them justice.

    Their website is a bit lacking as far as info for the Top-Side light goes, but having seen them first hand, I'll be adding a set to my boat.

    How do the light controls work on the G23? For the underwater lights, can you use the LINC screen to control them?

      They have a remote controlled dimmer, so they can be adjusted for rider comfort. I rode with them cranked all the way up and they didn't bother my eyes. It's crazy how far back they light up the wave. They attach to the gel coat with a double sided adhesive sticker on the back of the light strip. They said you do have to drill one small hole at the end of the light strip for the wires, but otherwise it's just a sticker between the light and the boat.

        I have their Underwater Lights on my own G23 and yes, they are controlled through the LINC system. They have a version of the install kit for underwater lights that accepts a signal from the factory system to turn on and off through the touch screen. There are ports on my install kit box for Top-Side Lights to be added, so my understanding is that they can be turned on and off simultaneously with Underwater Lights through the touch screen and then controlled separately with the dimmer remote control.

        The Top-Side Lights are 12V so I'm guessing you could find a way to install them to the touch screen even without the Liquid Lumens underwater lights install box. If you didn't have other underwater lights you could use the factory wiring. With other underwater lights, you could go straight to the battery or battery disconnects and just use the dimmer remote to control the lights. I'm sure a 12V specialist could figure out how to add it to the touch screen though. Maybe Liquid Lumens know how to do it?

          Hi, and thank you for your interest in our products. As mentioned by others here, our website needs to be updated with more info on the Top-Side Lights. We're in the process of doing so, as well as adding new images and video of the lights. There are a few available already but new photos will appear here in our gallery:

          We also have some additional pictures & video available on Instagram here:

          I'll see what I can do to get more description and technical info onto the website this week.

          If I can answer any other questions, feel free to contact me directly at support@liquidlumens.com

            and I have my brigade board on order!
            I use two rigid Dually pods facing rearwards and angle them down onto the wave as well as white under waters. I feel even with the best under waters I still can't see the definition in the wave to time tricks and stuff, the over head lights make a big difference and I was able to angle mine down enough that they aren't in your eyes at all. Here is a video of what mine looked like this past weekend.
