LEDs light the way for big-wave night surfer

Professional big-wave surfer Mark Visser might possess superhuman athletic skills, but surprisingly, he does not have night vision. Therefore, when he made history riding 30- to 40-foot waves in the middle of the night last month, he got some help from techies. Visser rode a surfboard tricked out with LED lights created specially for the project by LED company Solus using NASA submarine lighting. The lights were positioned to illuminate the waves and board in all the right places without hindering Visser's vision.
