Mark Visser Surfs Jaws…at Night

24 Jan

So, this is ballsy. Australian Maker Visser decided to stroll on out to Jaws in Maui at 2am and ride some 30-40 foot waves in complete darkness. He was lit only by LED lights built into his life vest and surfboard while helicopters hovered overhead filming the event. He is a hellman.

“It wasn’t until I saw the pictures I realized how big it was. This project has been two years in the planning and it was the scariest, but most exciting thing I have ever done,” says Visser. “Riding in complete darkness meant I had to go off feeling. I had to zone out from how you normally ride and just be part of the wave. I am so pumped to achieve something that no one thought possible and that I was told was couldn’t be done.”
