Good Morning, Here’s A Guy Surfing While On Fire

Red Bull put some poor adrenaline junkie (Jamie O’Brien) up to surfing with flames coming off of his body. FLAMES, people. Remember when Red Bull’s marketing strategy was those doofy little commercials in which little cartoon people would grow wings and fly away? Yeah, no more of that.

Surf’s Up For The Pups

Hounds of America, it is time to start your new hobby! Bobby the four-pound Pomeranian was one of over 60 dogs that participated in this year’s Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition on Saturday.

Travel Diary: My Costa Rican Surf Adventure

I recently crossed something off my bucket list. At 29-almost-30, I finally learned how to surf.
