Mark Visser’s 2am Tow In At Jaws

What’s the best way to surf by yourself in perfect waves? Surf them in pitch black. Mark Visser may be crazy, but he may also be a genius. Maybe it’s because we love creative lighting. Maybe it’s because we love athletes raising the bar. Either way, you need to check out this video. Using newly developed light technology, Visser was towed into 30-40 foot surf while lighting his own path and remaining visible by helicopter and jet-skis. “The lighting technologies were created especially for the project by Solus Corporation using ground breaking NASA submarine lighting to ensure the wave and board were lit in the right places, at the right time and illuminated the wave without hindering the vision of Visser, the jet ski drivers and the helicopter pilots.”
This ride is the first part of Visser’s “9 Lives” project. Can’t wait to see how he risks the other 8!
