What Do You Get When You Cross Surfing And Fire?...This Insane Footage
Man sets himself ablaze before riding a wave in world famous surf spot.
Even at the best of times, surfing can be extremely difficult. Not everyone, it would seem, is happy with the difficulty level on offer however. Step forward: Mr Jamie O'Brien, a man who just surfed one of the world's heaviest waves...while on fire.
Teahupo'o, of Tahiti, is the surf spot where O'Brien made this insane dream a reality. There's not much else to say about it because, let's face it, mere words can't really do justice to a flaming ridiculous stunt such as this. You just need to watch it, and let the moving images do the talking.
