There’s nothing better than sitting on the beach, watching the surfers tear it up except for sitting on the beach and watching the surfers light it up.


Not many people put fire and water together, but a member of the Red Bull Minor Threat team, made up of eight surfers dedicated to advancing the sport, had the genius idea to attach a flare to the end of his board.

And let’s just say it’s a game-changer.

It’s cool enough to watch flare surfing by day, when it looks like the barrel is exploding and chasing the surfer like a fireball in an action movie. But at night, the sight is both breathtaking and beautiful — setting the ocean aglow.

We don’t recommend you paddling novices try this, but we definitely endorse the idea brought up on Business Insider: this would make a great Olympic sport.
