One of the good things about a Tron remake is that fans of the franchise can now craft their own light suit out of anything. Designer jackets, loose-cut jeans, and even one-piece suits can be fitted with the neon decals as long as you have the tools and the time. As seen over at Laughing Squid, night surfing is the newest (and most awesome) application of the Tron look.

Funded and organized by Strongbow Cider's Australian branch, some impressive electroluminescent wetsuits were on display at Bondi Beach, Sydney, as a professional surfing crew showed off some moves for local press at a promotional event just a couple of weeks ago.

While the look of the surfers is impressive, MAKE rightly wonders how the surfers managed to pull it off without their suits shorting out. As seen in the video below, waterproofing those wetsuits couldn't have been easy if the team used electrical inverters and wire. At the very least, it definitely looks a lot safer than flare surfing.

Check out the video below to see how you can replicate the Tron look on just about anything (we're thinking computer bags, PC towers, skateboards) with copper, a lighter, some wire, a battery back, and a soldering kit.
