NOCQUA began in 2013 with the release of the flagship Pro Series 2000. A patented underwater lighting system designed to mount underneath stand up paddleboards, kayaks, and canoes. We were inspired to hand the reigns to paddlers so that they could decide when they wanted to get outdoors and on the water. As demand grew, so did our ideas. In no time, the Pro Series Spectrum and Sport Edition models entered the market, bringing color and a more compact design, respectively. Waters
across the globe began to glow.
In developing a rechargeable system of LEDs designed for underwater use, NOCQUA inventor Billy Rossini faced the paramount task of designing a rechargeable battery small and light enough to sit on a paddleboard, while maintaining water resistance that would ensure safe and continued use. Little did he know that in 2015, this technology would catapult NOCQUA out of its lighting niche and into the growing world of mobile power for the outdoors.
