Red Bull Minor Threat pairs four veteran surfers with four juniors on remote surf breaks in the Mentawai Islands. Based on the Indies Trader 4 boat, both young and old push one another to progress their skill level in surfing – masterly documented by photographer Brian Bielmann.
While on the Red Bull Minor Threat project, four junior surfers learned from the four veterans about life on the road, professional contests, staying afloat in the industry and more. But the veterans will also learn from the juniors how to stay cutting edge and progressive and at the top of their game.
Who is who: The eight riders constituting the Red Bull Minor Threat team are Julian Wilson, Jordy Smith, Jamie O’Brien, Bruce Irons, Evan Geiselman, Conner Coffin, Kolohe Andino and Cristobal de Col.
