About This Video:
Bruce Irons is so much better than you, that he decided to surf Teahupoo blindfolded. Why? We're not sure. But, it is pretty amazing and in this video he gets barreled for a good 3-4 seconds before the blindfold flies off.
According to Stab Magazine, here is what Bruce had to say: “I’ve tried to close my eyes in the barrel before, just messing around, but, with those pantie things on my head, it was weird. My eyes were open but all I saw was black. But, if you grew up surfing, you can call on that instinct you’ve built. You can feel how close you are to the wave face. The thing is, the best barrels you get, the deepest ones, you don’t know what you’re doing ‘cause it’s black in there and you’re riding the foamball like a rodeo.”
Translation: I am so ridiculous good I don't even need my eyes to surf one of the best breaks in the world.
