Surfer Sets Himself On Fire, Gets Barreled Like It's NBD

A bro. On fire. Surfing one of the world's most dangerous waves.

Who is JOB? Apparently, he's a professional surfer who wants to give Johnny Knoxville a run for his money.  

During a recent trip to Tahiti, pro surfer-turned-stuntman Jamie O'Brien (aka "JOB") set himself on fire and went surfing for his Red Bull TV web series, "Who Is JOB 5.0."

While wild antics aren't unusual for the 32-year-old and his friends -- they have been known to pull off goofy surfing tricks -- O'Brien fireballed through a particularly impressive wave.

The stunt took place at Teahupoo, which means "broken skulls" in Tahitian. The surf break is famous for steep, powerful waves that crash over a shallow and bone-crushing reef.

Of course, that wasn’t enough excitement for Jamie O’Brien. He had to go and add fire to the mix.

Surf's up, JOB.
