Comments on the clue
1.I get the impression the writer was determined to use 'prime spots' and had to force the rest, which weakens the surface
2.Ambitious wordplay but an unconvincing surface
3.Nice indicator. I think enforest is only applicable to land, the opposite of deforest. OED def of "inforest" supports this.
4.Surface makes no sense to me
