Jamie O'Brien is a stuntman, so it's not supposed to be surprising to see him attempt something considered so dangerous.
Nevertheless, stop and marvel at this latest act. O'Brien literally lit himself on fire and proceeded to surf at the reef in Teahupo'o, on the southwestern coast of Tahiti.
The stunt was also recorded for his original series, "Who Is Job 5.0."
O'Brien headed out early in the morning to attempt the crazy stunt, paddling toward the reef in the dark. O'Brien told Red Bull it was far from an impromptu adventure, especially given the preparation that went into the stunt.
He flew out to California to test his idea and his anxiety started to creep in.
"I remember on the plane thinking it was so out of the box," O'Brien told Red Bull. "What was I doing flying to California to light myself on fire? Riley's crew members were telling me how some folks panic, and you never know how you'll react.
People think they’ll be fine then they get lit on fire and they lose it. I was like, 'God, I hope that doesn't happen to me.' All the anticipation and worry of whether you'll get burned, the build-up was like ... beyond ... I can't even put it into words."
On the day of the run, O'Brien donned 15 extra pounds of wet suits and thermal gear. On a practice run the day before, the flames had burned through a few layers of his wetsuit and singed his eyebrow.
Thankfully, O'Brien completed his stunt without any hiccups.
"I caught the best wave of my life today," he said. "It was a dream wave, and I was on fire. It was the biggest adrenaline rush of my life. Everything went super smooth."
