Description

Jamie O’Brien, aka JOB, is a stuntman/surfer who headed to Tahiti with Red Bull, lit himself on fire, then rode a wave.

Why? Who cares why! It looks totally sweet is why.

Here’s the video:

And here’s O’Brien from an interview with Red Bull:

The craziest thing was getting on the boat in the dark. The light where you’d normally start paddling out is the light that you need to get lit on fire. And then you’re surfing over a razor-sharp reef in a perfect environment and trying to time everything with the whole set. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. And the build-up, the nerves … it still feels like every time I get lit on fire is the first time, because there’s a new challenge every time, from the trial runs on land, to taking it to the water, then surfing a wave and eventually weaving through a barrel.

This all sounds terrifying and dangerous. Dear lord.
