The design would start with a standard skateboard shape but with added electroluminecent light strips along the sides and front for added effect. The trucks and wheels would be made out of a material that is strong for riding on but highly reflective at the same time. The wheels and the mini 'hubcaps' would look like mirrors but would be made from the same material that would function as skateboard wheels for grip. From the side, the board would appear to float while gliding by or when doing air jumps. The viewer would not be able to see any wheels.

       I like the concept, but I'm not sure mirrors would be ideal for hiding the wheels.

       Maybe, but probably not when "doing air jumps".

       Or tilting for a turn...
