During the 2011 Red Bull Minor Threat surf trip in Indonesia, professional surfer Bruce Irons attached flares to his surfboard and went… wait for it… Flare Surfing. As you can see from these gifs, the results were blazingly awesome. At times it looks like Bruce is actually surfing on a board made of flames.

"Irons admits that he wasn’t too keen on the idea when fellow team member Sam McIntosh suggested the "flare surfing" idea to him. However, in the end, he opted to perform the stunt, not knowing just how awesome the blazing trail of inferno would look at night through the water."
