Part surfer, part stuntman, Jamie O’Brien never fails to come up with new and terrifying ways to nearly kill himself in the ocean. For the latest episode of his web series, J.O.B. teamed up with a Hollywood stunt coordinator to create a flame-retardant wetsuit, light himself on fire, and pull into a barrel at Teahupoo. According to Jamie, he got the idea from a comment on Instagram. "They said 'it would be cool if you lit yourself on fire' and I thought, might as well.” Makes perfect sense, right?
