Red Bull Minor Threat, Flaring Up - Surfing with a Flare (2011)
"A couple of years ago, while on the Red Bull Minor Threat trip in Indonesia, professional surfer Bruce Irons decided to take his sport to the next level by strapping a few flares onto his board. What resulted is a stunning visual spectacle that looks almost like a man riding the waves on a board 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." - My Modern Metropolis

PAINTING: Edward Moran’s “Life Saving Patrol.” What more do you want? SONG: John William’s theme for Granny Wendy in Steven Spielberg’s HOOK.
