Ian Walsh is known for charging some of the world’s biggest waves and doing it well. After all, Jaws is in his backyard. Ian took his big wave prowess to the next level last winter when he decided to buy a nine-foot inflatable hot dog and tow in to Jaws on top of it. As he put it, “you’re pretty much committing 100 percent to getting licked.” Did he ever.

With the ever-present possibility of drowning at big wave spots, this stunt begs the question: how far is too far?

See Red Bull’s interview with Ian here.


This is where your licking begins, Ian.

“Wait, this was a bad idea.”
