Spencer Frost’s new short film Dancing in the Dark cracks the lid on the sublime, solitary experience of night surfing.

If you’re sick of burnt yellows and sun flares in your surf flicks then Spencer Frost’s new film is sure to please. With surfing mostly shot around Byron Bay, the film is filled with inky blues and blacks, and explores surfing by the light of the full moon.
Nocturnal surfing has its benefits; heightened senses and clear lineups to name a few, all made more special by the scarcity of the experience. The lunar cycle means that this is a monthly experience, at best.
Modern camera tech’s extraordinary ability to see in the darks means shots without compromise. So sit back and enjoy, but please keep your howling to a minimum.
