Surfers play with fire and water by surfing with flares

These surfers in the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia surf with flair. Or flare, as it were.

That's flare as in a flaming torch attached to the back of a surfboard, something members of the Red Bull Minor Threat surf team did recently to, what, gain publicity for Red Bull? Well, it worked.

At night, the glow emanating from the tubular waves is, well, quite illuminating. In the daytime, it looks like a guy surfing on a burning surfboard. It's one time where fire and water actually do mix.

Red Bull called it "flaring up" and it's worth a look:
