Video: Snowboarding at night – Jacob Sutton’s L.E.D. Surfer – beautiful dark light

L.E.D. Surfer

Artec pro snowboarder William Hughes cuts up snow-covered slopes of Tignes in the Rhône-Alpes region of south-eastern France, wearing a custom-rigged L.E.D. suit by designer and electronics magi John Spatcher. Filmed by the sickeningly talented (positive) Jacob Sutton – normally encased in studio walls with the heat of bright lights – the composite outcome, I think you’ll agree, is breathtakingly wonderful.


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.

It took Sutton three nights sliding around on a skidoo with his trusty Red Epic camera, guzzling red wine, with temperatures of -25C, to capture Hughes carving masterfully through the fresh powder – with immaculate results.

EDGE { novel } In the near future, a prolific inventor is close to burn out. Desperate for a break he grabs an opportunity to go snowboarding in New Zealand, thinking it will refresh his mind and spirit. But a malign and alien force is oozing back into our reality, older than humankind and growing strong as it emerges after centuries of absence. Zen Dow snowboarding and ski resort, perched in the foothills of the volcanic mountain Ruapehu, is about to experience mind-shredding consequences as one of the Great Old Ones returns. On the other side of the world, an unscrupulous concept scout scrambles onto the trail of a new technology that has vanished from the corporate R&D labs. Quickly out of his depth, it becomes a race to track down the missing components before competing corporate agents kill him. David J Rodger’s trademark relentless narrative pace is here in palm-sweating abundance, delivered in a tense action-packed novel that blends corporate espionage, with a creeping, spine-chilling horror.
