Flare surfing is the latest game-changing rage in surfing. As darkness falls, flare surfing is truly a breathtaking spectacle with the ocean set aglow.
Red Bull’s Minor Threat pairs four junior surfers with four elite surf veterans, in the hope that the seasoned guys will impart some of their accumulated wisdom to the youngsters, while the juniors will imbue the veterans with their youthful recklessness.
Red Bull Minor Threat team came up with the “Surfing with a flare” idea of attaching a flare to the end of their surf boards. And they tested out their game-changing idea recently in the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia. Among those involved were Bruce Irons, Kolohe Andino and Jamie O’Brien, who each got the chance to “surf with flare.”
The team pulled it off with an incredible display of skill, combining fire and water with stunning visual effects.
If you have tried surfing, you will know it is not an easy sport to master. Yet these guys can surf while keeping their flares out of the water.
