The LED surfboard video we peeped a few months ago was noteworthy, but it hardly compares to the LED snowboarder.

Filmmaker Jacob Sutton hit the French Alps with pro snowboarder William Hughes and captured him cutting through the powder in a custom made LED suit.  The “bespoke LED suit” was built and designed by John Spatcher.  It held up in temperatures that dipped as low as low as -13 degree F over the course of 3 nights, though it wasn’t problem free by any account.

The compelling footage was captured using a RED camera.  It helps that the footage is in black and white, which we assume is a result of some sort of nightshot.  However, we don’t know much about the RED cameras and what they’re capable of, so if you have some thoughts feel free to chime in on the comments.
