Surfing With A Flare…Literally! (Video)
Athletes from all sports are always looking to add some flair to their performances, and surfers are certainly no exception. But what makes a surfers “flair for the dramatic” different from those of other athletes is their use of an actual flare.
Red Bull put their “Surfing with a flare” idea to the test recently during the bonus round of their Red bull Minor Threat, which pairs four veteran elite surfers with four minor surfers on remote surf breaks in the Mentawai Islands. Among those involved were Bruce Irons, Kolohe Andino and Jamie O’Brien, who each got the chance to “surf with flare.”
Here is a look at the rather remarkable sight they produced.
