A true survival story about a crazy fishing trip gone wrong

Red Bull is animating crazy surfer stories and this one from surfer Dean 'Dingo' Morrison is a doozy. It starts when he decides to buy a boat to try and catch the biggest fish he can.

Watching surfers with glow in the dark wetsuits surf on their light-up neon surfboards in the complete dark is a visual mind bender. It's also completely crazy cause uh... SHARKKKKSS? Could you paint a bigger target on yourself than BRIGHT LIGHTS ALL OVER YOUR BODY.

The GoPro Hero Sports Camera seriously is cool, and watching Brian toppling over himself on a snowboard made me want to search for even more GoPro videos. Enter sexy Spanish surfer wiping out. Swooon.

Sweet Video Shows Sub-Zero Surfing with Rip Curl H-Bomb Power-Heated Wetsuit

Rip Curl wetsuits may keep surfers warm in general, but nobody recommended hitting the waves in 20 degree weather, with wind chill factor bringing it down to -4 degrees Fahrenheit.
