LED Surfer: What Tron Would Look Like On a Snowboard [Video]

John Spatcher created a full-body LED suit which was donned by William Hughes for an after dark snowboarding session in the bitter cold of the French Alps. The experience was documented by filmmaker Jacob Sutton, who stated:

I was really drawn to the idea of a lone character made of light surfing through darkness […] I’ve always been excited by unusual ways of lighting things, so it seemed like an exciting idea to make the subject of the film the only light source.

Check out the video after the break.
