Yup, thats right, apparently surfing monster waves just isn’t enough anymore…
You now need to set yourself alight and then ride a massive wave.
Professional free surfer Jamie O’Brien did just that at Teahupo’o.
They said ‘it would be cool if you lit yourself on fire’ and I thought, might as well. So I went into Red Bull and I said hey, I want to light myself on fire and go into a barrel at Teahupo’o,” O’Brien says.
Turns out Red Bull was keen 😀
