If you have nyctophobia, you’re afraid of the dark. So nyctophobiacs are unlikely to experience the thrill of surfing at night.
There are many good reasons to surf at night: small waves feel like Teahupoo, you won’t get sunburn and crowds are rare.
So what do you do if you’re afraid of the dark and you want to go night surfing?
In a moment of philanthropic fervour I found these five illuminating surf videos:
1. Get a head torch and helicopter
2. Fire up a flare
3. Strap some Christmas lights to your board
4. Bathe in bioluminescent phytoplankton
5. Find a film crew and major sponsors
