Jamie O’Brien on the Ricardo Dos Santos Incident

Earlier today, Stab reported that there’d been an altercation of the physical kind during a heat in the Billabong Pro, Tahiti trials. Jamie O’Brien and Ricardo Dos Santos both needed a score with very little time remaining, and a wave presented itself. Early reports suggested that after a furious paddle battle, Ricardo took off on the inside, Jamie got annoyed, and took a swing. But according to Jamie, that ain’t exactly right.

“The funny part is that no one’s actually asked for my side of the story,” says Jamie. “They’ve all just seen a weak manoeuvre by (Ricardo) posting it on social media, which is when it took off.” Jamie’s referring to Ricardo’s immediate post on Instagram, which read: “Thanks, Jamie O’Brien, for punching me in the face during my heat in the trials.”

Social media being the digital snowball that it is, Ricardo’s claim quickly became the accepted story. But Jamie says it ain’t the real one.

“I was deeper than him and I had positioning,” says Jamie. “And the real story is, he paddled straight into me and hit me with an overhand head check. And then he followed up with an elbow to the head. So, when I took off on the wave, I already knew I was burning him, which is no problem. Then I slapped him on the wave.”

While this is contradictory to Ricardo’s claim that Jamie punched him, Jamie is resolute.

“No, I didn’t punch him on the wave,” repeats Jamie. “I slapped him. So we both fell on the wave. And he came chasing after me. He threw the first punch. And y’know, he threw a coupla punches, and I threw a coupla punches, and that was the result of it. It was not a big deal. Yeah, we’re men, and these things happen.”

And that might’ve been it. But – and this is where it gets sticky – Jamie says that Ricardo turned the situation into something it wasn’t. “I shook hands, everything was cool, but he asked me to put my head down when I shook the hand, and I was disappointed with the, like, “Jamie O’Brien bowing down to me” thing. I went back and apologised and did the right thing, but hey, he did wrong too, I wasn’t the only one. I’m not an asshole and that’s not what I was pushing for. But it took off on social media.”

Jamie again raises social media because Ricardo’s second post, featuring an image of the handshake (above), also came with a misconstrued message. “After the episode, @whoisjob, came to say sorry and make sure that will never happen again,” wrote Ricardo. “For the brazilian people I told him to put his head down and be humble as a normal human! Brazil, we got dignity back!”

Yup, it’s that last part that ain’t such a hit. Says Jamie: “It’s between Ricardo and I, and Ricardo made it between Brazil and I. It’s a real coward thing to do. It’s between me and Ricardo.”

All social media posts from Jamie and Ricardo have since been removed. Neither men scooped golden tickets, with Alan Riou winning the trials and Anthony Walsh placing second.

    Must be all that Red Bull

  • Da Fui

    now if the shoe was on the other foot and a Brazzo took a swing at Royalty, i mean a Hawaiian, no i mean a haole… no, i mean a white guy who’s lived in Hawaii forever and rushes Pipe, we’d have a huge story on our hands. but the way this has played out, it’s ok? if the roles were reversed, Ricardo would have problems coming to surf the main spots on the North Shore this winter… hmmmmm. Life.

    what would JOBless do without his big sponsor? can’t even look the man in his eye.

    • discodisco

      i’d imagine that ricardo will still have problems on the north shore this winter…

      • BigPhatNose

        I know, right. Ricardo better watch his back, Poopies might be looking for him

        • shoootsbrah

          that made me laugh. pooooopies!! if i was ricardo i would for sure have my head on a swivel around hawaii for a few years after this. lucky for jaime i dont think he will have to worry cause why would he visit Brazil anyway.

          • YD

            Well, since I read posts from Kai Borg and Sunny giving him support, I believe he will be fine.

    • sam

      What would any pro surfer do without his ‘big sponsor’?

  • Schizo, the escapist

    Can we see the video of it? I mean, it’ was in the middle of a fucking heat, right?

    • Josh Hromin

      ASP better not hold out on us!

    • Razo Tropical RJ

      JOB bought all videos… the notorious file burning…

      • Schizo, the escapist

        nah, I bet he’s more of a broke than a fat lip under the sun…

  • Meatpie

    This is going to be a goldmine of comments, I cant wait.

  • Meatpie

    Oh yeah… what were the waves like.

    • sam

      Haha I love how not only was there no streaming of the trials, but the only coverage of it at all is about 2 guys no where near winning who had a sneaky dust up

  • sam

    Pretty pathetic how many brazillian people feel the need to gang up and threaten anyone they feel has wronged a countryman, JOB/Julian etc. Julian did nothing wrong and got hundreds of death threats and thousands of hate spam messages.. JOB was wrong and did something stupid but it’s between him and Ricardo, yet he still gets comments from a thousand guys thinking it’s a declaration of war against a country? Come on.

    • sense

      Both JOB and ricardo are sponsored surfers, being watched and supported by the public. So it is understandable that when JOB completely ruined ricardo’s chances of getting a trial spot, especially significant because for ricardo, its the biggest event of the year, that ricardo’s supporters would be angry and the selfish bratty act of JOB.
      I think there is a clear distinction between blind patriotism and supporting a surfer from your country. Im sure if De Souza punched Mick Fanning (which he wouldnt), aussies would have a go at de souza.

      • sam

        Fair enough to support an athlete that you like but that is completely different to the vast majority of hate mail and threats posted. Everyone is equal, it doesn’t matter where you come from.. But for some reason Ricardo’s countrymen act like their nationality has been insulted and he perpetuates this by posting things like “Brazil, we got our dignity back”, what the hell does that mean? And neither of them got anywhere near a wildcard spot so that doesn’t really factor.

        • sense

          I definitely agree that there are people who feel as if Brazil has been metaphorically punched. I still think its important to realize that not all of the hate is because of patriotism, some of those ‘thousand guys’ are upset that their favorite surfer has been sabotaged by JOB.

        • YD

          Again, double standards from you, who only reads what you want. Everyone is equal?? Easy for you to say being aussie or american. Quit the hipocrisy.

          • sam

            @disqus_quE0exRo0b:disqus I can understand frustration at a favourite surfer being disadvantaged, thankfully it wasn’t in the final and either way Alain and Walshy would have won I believe. This does not excuse the vast majority of hate and abuse hurled in my opinion though.

            @disqus_G31IfxPmT9:disqus Where is the double standard? and how does me being Australian factor in at all?

          • YD

            Double standard in meaning you are forgetting to mention the hundreds of posts praising JOB for the punch. Those don’t count?
            Being australian meaning you belong to the status quo. The day you read an article on Surfline full of prejudice against the aussies, right after one of them had just won one of the most prestigious events on the tour, you’ll get my point. Just one of many examples.

          • imarightnurawrong

            Brazil has a surfing culture that insults much of the rest of the world. If your country suffers a poor rep, maybe there’s a reason. This isn’t a racist thing. It’s a Brazilians in the water can be really, really annoying and ruin everyone’s day. That’s not prejudice. That’s just what we see day in and day out surfing. Get wet, play by the rules, don’t be annoying, and no one will write articles again. Quit whining in the mean time.

            I’m a huge De Souza and Medina fan. But if a Brazilian’s in the water near me, it’s almost always a bad day.

          • YD

            Sure. Play by your rules, do as you say, behave the way you tell us to, and don’t bitch about it. Sorry, not gonna happen. We became independent a while ago.
            You keep generalizing… By the way, never said it was about racism, but care to take a look at some of the comments here and the number of people giving it a thumbs up.

          • sam

            They do count, and they’re ridiculous too – but the vast majority of comments are people abusing Jamie. I mean you don’t see many other people going onto ricardo’s instagram and spamming his other photos with threats nearly as much.

            By your second comment do you mean there has been an article on surfline prejudiced against medina when he won an event?

          • YD

            There was an article after Rio’s event which was so full of prejudice Surfline removed it from the site. If wanna take a look at it, go to The Inertia website and look for an article written by Tetsuhiko Endo, commenting on the issue.

          • sense

            yea true. Im just mad that my fantasy surfer team is suffering.

      • joebin

        As described by dustin barca in what youth issue 2, de souza doesnt throw punches, he just hires meatheads to do it for him. cause..”You should respect me!”

        • sense

          this wasnt about de souza, i just used him as an example

    • André Fraga

      Shut up your fucking mouth, bitch! you don’t know anything about us Brazilians, gringo bastard!

      • Fish Didier Joao

        VCS NÃO SURFAM NADA. SEUS OTÁRIOS.

      • sam

        Sad but not surprising you choose to further the stereostype.. where have I claimed to “understand Brazillians”? And why would I lump a group together and claim I understand all of them, I’ll admit right now I don’t understand most of you..Adopting this pack mentality as second nature and issuing threats left right and centre is foreign to me and I won’t profess to understand it at all.

        I have known 2 brazillian surfers through work, understood both, and became friends with both. It might shock you to find that 1 of them is so ashamed of his countrymen like you that he has changed his passport..

        • imarightnurawrong

          Pretty easy to understand; overactive machismo and no sense. Guys too busy worried about looking pretty and their ‘reps’ to consider others. They’re not complex creatures. We probably don’t get to see the good ones enough. I’m sure the majority of Brazilians are rad people. But damn, guys like Andre scream so loud, it’d be tough to notice anyone standing next to him.

          • sam

            The Brazillians I have met in person were nice guys, but like you said unfortunately the majority that are seen and heard are the loud aggressive ones

      • Gulliver

        Typical meathead response, I bet you are pounding your little concave chest as you type this.

      • David

        I think Hawaiians and Brazilians are cool as hell with lots of passion and pride. They are both wrong. If they were real men, they would have barried the hatchet after and handled it like men. Not go to social media to cry. Ricardo is still a kid and Jamie is still a kid that hasn’t grown up yet. REAL MEN REPRESENT THEIR COUNTRY WHEN THEY DID SOMETHING FOR THE COUNTRY! Pele don’t rep Brazil when he loose, only when he wins and he rarely lost. If you want to rep your country win (not fights but tournaments). Ricardo, real Brazilians don’t go tattletale about their bloody lip, at least the ones I know.

      • barrelsing surf

        ya but Jamie did nothing wrong he had position and got snaked he should have won that heat and plus Ricardo needs help from all of Brazil and to fight his battle with Jamie

      • imarightnurawrong

        God, you guys are so damn annoying

      • Josh Hromin

        I know all you brazilians rip! and have the best style for sure!

      • Seabass120

        This gringo knows plenty about Brazilians….your women that is. I’ve dumped many a load into Brazzo whores during my trips down there. Fact is that they love American cock – it’s a size thing they tell me. Apparently you boys are hung like a light switch.

        • tommy_one

          So true that’s what my Brazilian GF said. Sounds like that’s the real issue and need to be gang attacking they think by traveling in packs they can stick their dicks together and be uo to our size

          • YD

            You mean, your brazilian tranny.

          • tommy_one

            Yeah, you maybe right your dicks are so small they’re actually vaginas. You loser, still mad posting your anger and frustration. Get a life and a prosthetic already. It’s not to late to experience what it feels like to be man, Baby LOL

          • YD

            Hey, take it easy, girl! Your sexual preference is your own problem. I just found it weird the way you keep comparing dick sizes. Cheers.

          • tommy_one

            Now, I’m a girl? Get it straight, see that’s the problem with you dimwits. You have no intellect….if you did you would know better than to wear a Speedo Bikini which is a tell all that you have no balls. I’m sure you hate talking about dick sizes because it’s traumatic, a touchy subject. Nonetheless, very important. LOL (Man, don’t get mad I’m totally joking around) World Wars were started by Men with very small penises. World Peace ruined by the same men. Look at Hitler, a mean, little man. He was just like your surfing baby. He couldn’t scrap so, he manipulated an entire country do it for him. He hated Blacks and Jews because he was put to shame as a man. As a boy he tried to pee in a goat’s mouth and had a few inches taken off. He was the laughing stock of his childhood. Look at the damage his insecurity caused. No different than you(r) (attitude) and those that share your hatred and anger. The most powerful weapon is your intellect, not rolling in the sweat of your opponent unless of course you like that kind of kink (again just joking). You (everyone) should read “Zen in the Martial Arts” by Joe Hyams. Long ago when we faced swords, today bullets we took (take) huge risks. It’s simple; yet, on a different level. You win a war by not entering it. It’s like “The City of God” in the end the big man makes it through years only to be taken down by a little kid. It shows that mentality plays you for a fool sooner or later. Also. the common masses full of this mentality will follow the same path. I asked Rickson Gracie one day, “What style do you use when you come up on ten guys maybe armed?” He replied, “ching, ching, bang, bang!”That’s extreme, I’m not one to live with the karma of killing someone, worse ten guys. Yeah, I’m a black belt and it took years. The truth is I haven’t been in a match or fight since I got my Black Belt. I’d rather not go through the rolling around in another man’s sweat not even for a trophy. I guess you never know when a pistol is at your head but that’s what I’m saying I’m a few steps ahead of that ever happening. Aloha

            on top of bragging about inseminating prostitutes, you appear obsessed with male genitalia. one can only deduce that you are very stupid, or perhaps that you picked up an STD in the slums of rio during your cultural exploits, and the fungus has spread to your brain.

          • Seabass120

            Gosh david, it’s not me that obsessed with male genitalia – it’s those horny Brazzo bitches! Don’t be angry at us because you can’t satisfy your women. I just feel sorry for them…I mean, how can any typical Brazzo monkey (packing the equivalent of a Vienna sausage) satisfy those hungry cum-sluts down there?

          • david

            gosh, seabass! i’m not angry. i’m having a good time making fun of you, although i must admit you make it easy. every time you and this tommy one character post something, it’s comic gold. the jokes write themselves. also, i’m not brazilian.

      Probably you are forgetting the hundreds of maessages praising JOB for the punch. Brazilians are tired of being screwed by the system and things like what JOB did happenned in the past and the ASP did nothing. All it takes is a spark to lit up the fire.

    • Mauricio

      ASP should do something about it. It s not the first time. Remember MAkua on Paulo Moura in Pipe..
      And David…. you re a little confuse about brazilian s surf reality. Raoni Monteiro don t have sponsor imagine the others surfers? You must come to Brasil to see how we live and how we theath people and then trasmit your opinion Knowing what you talking about

  • alexander supertramp

    too bad there is no video.

    Fuck all the brazilians on instagram, they all sound like a bunch of inbred apes.

      truth. brazza storm is so fucking lame.

    • Francisco Neto

      Fuck you, your asshole racist! Came here and say that we look like a “inbred apes” and you will get much more than a gorilla punch your anonymous haole. If Jamie’O was punched you would demand justice here.

      • maxine the mort

        I said sound like and by the way you wrote that, the fact remains true.

        • Francisco Neto

          Just answer me this: What do you expect if it were otherwise? What do u want? Everytime that something like this happens we ask for apologies? Pfff…

          For me Jamie’O remains a great surfer, but he missed .. and missed BIG, for all the world watch. I recognize his mistake and admire his act of public apology, but no reason in the sea is justification for a physical assault. And no confusion justifies you comment so racist. It’s just a matter of humility that in 2 or 3 weeks it will be forgotten by the media and many of the “angry mass.”

          Go surfing and will not talk about my country, you still have much to discover about ourselves… much more than samba, soccer and Amazon Forest, like most of the idiots who say things like you said. In contrary to what you might think we “Brazzos” respect you gringo when you hold the right. Do not do that shit again, with no other country, and not anonymous too. The reason have no country. Peace.

          • maxine the mort

            The reason why i have problems with you, is when i travel to bali paddle out at Uluwatu and there is 80 brazzos. I met 2 cool ones out of 80, the rest dropped in on me and surfed like donkeys. Thats not the best odds.

          • Francisco Neto

            Undestand u, but u cant generalize it. I knew a lot of australians in El Salvador and almost all of them dropped in on the waves there too. The local people in Punta Mango really dont like americans and australians, cause they don’t respect nobody and someones think they bought the waves there.Its s prejudgement too. “Each one is each one” and you must respect to be respected. I don’t ask your country to judge what u’re before know u. This history about JOB and Ricardinho was sux. It may have two sides of the history, we cannot be hypocrite. But when u see somebody being racist u can’t ‘digest’ this, think that to your country dude. I really dont undestand why JOB ask for public apologies if he was punched first… but…whatever now…is just done.

      • André Fraga

        These anonymous gringos do not show your face and want respect! first appear, showing their faces!

      Generalizing is never a good idea. I’ve been photographing professional surfing on the north shore for over 15 years and your comments are stupid. Good surfers are good surfers, no matter where they are from. You probably cant surf for shit and have to use the web for your “release”. Lame, Its a surprise you could put a few words together and try to make a phrase. Mom must be proud.

    From SurFLine….

    According to onlookers, the pair rode the same wave in the dying moments of their heat – with Dos Santos on the inside and O’Brien on the outside. There was a physical altercation as the surfers rode the wave, with Dos Santos being forced from his board. The altercation continued after Dos Santos surfaced and a member of the water patrol intervened to help quell the dispute.

    • Jackson Everitt

      brazzo’s are exactly the same in any country you go , there fukin gay and disrespectful dont understand the rules of surfing one little bit they bring nothing good to surfing they should be banned to surf any where other than there 2ft shithole BRAZIL!! fuckin kooks the lot of them to your average surfer from rio to adraino !!

    JOB is a pussy. Ricardo will fuck him up any day of the week. Hawaiians should watch their backs, More brazilians than them in hawaii these days. Actually fuck Ricardo too.

    • Ryanno

      If Ricardo is so hard then why didn’t he “fuck” JOB up rather than have a whinge on instagram. It’s bizarre. What happens on the field should stay on the field.

      • Fabio Menegat

        What happens on the field should should be judged on the field.

    “and make sure that will never happen again.” “I told him to put his head down.” It will be more like, see you at Pipe, Ricardo, Pride of Brazil.

    why did bong hold the trials in 2 ft slop? is the forecast for the waiting period really that bad that you make some of the best tube riders in the world grovel in shit conditions? why wasnt this livestreamed when every contest including womens wqs events are streamed online? whether defrauding their investors or covering up andy’s death for profit reasons, bong always seems to make the dumbest decisions, decisions which will someday drive the company out of existence.

    • imarightnurawrong

      Some day? They’re broke now. How they foot the bill for the contest is beyond me.

  • Lopaka

    How can there be no video!?

  • .,

    The anger from the Brazilians was understandable seeing as JOB literally ruined Dos Santos’s heat, and his chances of making the trials. Its easy to point the finger at the Brazilians but if roles were reversed then the Hawaiians would be way more angry, probably making threats for when he goes there for the winter.

    In my opinions hawaiians are bigger cunts, just look at Makua Rothman who said Dos Santos deserved to be punched in the face (for no reason?). Someone needs to smash his head in. Preferably with a ukulele.

    • manrique

      hahaha makua thinks he is a ufc fighter, he`s a tuf guy but only when kala or barca are behind him!! come men grow up kook

            Funny you would think that of me. Maybe my comment was pretty crude. I will be erasing it just cause I don’t want to carry myself like that. I don’t like brazilians in the water, so it is easy for me to get caught up in stuff like this. Anyways it is none of my business and I will keep my opinions to myself. Just to clarify I am actually in fact employed and I am rather successful. I have a mid six figure salary and am comfortable enough my wife doesn’t have to work. I hope you can say the same for yourself.

          • Seaman

            Rodrigo Resende actually won, with hawaiian partner McNamara the first and only tow event at giant Jaws…and the first world champ of the big wave tour is Carlos Burle. So yeah, keep your shit events at Trestles going cause we are not interested. And you better hurry because those american developers cant wait to put a road thru the place and destroy it, the american way…

There are bigger waves in my bathtub, and you choose that as your main representation? Hhahahaha, what a joke, leave the surfing to the grown ups, go suck a soccer ball.

          • Francisco Neto

            “Mimimi”…Hahahah “claiming it”? come on kid! I can see the better things that u have to do…looking for my pics? So gay of you part. hahahaha The gayest pic is your that arent a man to show your face and to think that one simple tumb pic is like a dick size. Wanna see a dick? Hahahha Go use your ‘worry time’ to find it on the web, but carefull boy you may find momm fucking with some “brazillian donkey dick”. That’s all asshole! I must work.

            Kid? ASSumptions from a little guy, what are you 12?. I have plenty of pics, sorry fag, they aren’t for your eyes, you may go swing yourself from your mom/sisters basement if you saw what a real wave looks like. How did dicks get brought into this conversation? Oh yeah, you’re a fag, obviously you have dicks on the brain, if you can even call that little rotten pellet rattling around in that monkey skull a brain, more like a cancerous monkey turd. Hey, this is fun, funny how defensive you idiots get, over a little fat lip hahahahaha. GHEY.

            Hahhahaahahahahahahhahah “They arent for my eyes?” You speak to much kid. You’re the joke here mr. Big Rider, dont turn it worse for u buddy! hahahahhaahahahah serously.

          • Gulliver

            huh? Did you type that with your forehead? Or did your mom do it from under you? I surf for myself, not so I can try and impress random idiots on the internet. You posted that pathetic excuse of a surf pic, you opened yourself to the ridicule, now in typical brazzo fashion you hurl faggy insults and act tough haha. I bet you are 5′ tall and could be squashed like a potato bug.

          • Francisco Neto

            Hahaha You’re really funny. i comment this post to talk about your ridiculous and racist words about Ricardinho, and you start to shifting the focus. You really dont have anything else to do, really like a kid..asking me if my momm wrote my words? hahah come on. You’re not man enought to say that words using your real name, I dont have any excuses, and dont have anything to hide like a idiot with secret photos. Don’t carry about what you think about my tumb, its just a fucking pic. But your racism is so much shameful that you do not have the courage to sign your own post.

        rolling around a mat with other guys is pretty gay you have to admit.

  • david

    it should have been left between the two surfers but ricardo blew it up on insta (which seems unnecessarily dramatic and a stupid way to handle it when he could have just approached jamie later and straightened it out one way or another) and then made it about brazil, which opened the floodgate for his counrymen to take it personally and start issuing threats. jamie doesn’t seem to have his story quite straight, either, though. did he have “positioning” like he claims or was he “burning him?” pretty contradictory. sounds like eyewitness have ricardo on the inside. either way, brazilians hate to be stereotyped but they seem to be at the center of trouble fairly often. where there’s smoke, there’s fire. brazilans’ reputation for ill manners in the lineup precedes them in lineups across the globe for a good reason and they can complain about generalizations all they want but until their actions indicate a change in behavior the reputation will continue to dog them. on the other hand, we all know job’s got an ego and probably an entitlement trip to go with it. still, he apologized, and if he agreed to bow his head during the apology he shouldn’t complain about it now.

    • .,

      Yeah you pretty much nailed it. Eyewitness accounts suggest Ricardo was on the inside, so Jamie is probably making a bit of his story up and his apology isnt legit seeing as he is bitching about it to stab. But at the same time Ricardo was wrong to jump on instagram and involve brazil

      • Luiz Filipe

        In short: Jamie is a baggy and Ricardo is an idiot
        I’m Brazilian, but Ricardo dos Santos does not represent me

      • Razo Tropical RJ

        Jamie is not a grown man to bow his head and complain about later … and Ricardo is a gourd kid, appealed unnecessairily

    • Pietro

      try to surf next to JOB anywhere, not just in hawaii, and you will see who is unpolite in the water.

      • Mega LOKO FLORIPA

        Fuck of, JOB Go work hard ! I have see many time guys like JOB , Sunny ,Dustin Barca and many pit bull hawaiian a round this world and is the same , they find a Brazilian Jiujitsu black belt and be calm like a cat. kkkk

        • Razo Tropical RJ

          True Loko, but the ancient art is not for trouble, remember that son.

      • pigwidgeon

        true. i remember the Nias incident when JOB kicked a trash can…. like some1 pointed out Red Bull has made JOB’s head so big it grew wings! I don’t think JOB has a good reputation even among the hawaiians (See Kai Borg and Kamalei Alexander messages to Santos). Also Sunny Garcia almost kicked JOB azz a few months ago.

      • Razo Tropical RJ

        If JOB was born in Brazil, he would be like Luan Santana.

    • SCalJack

      i disagree. ppl need a enemy and for some reason they elected the brazzos. i don’t think they are very different from australians or americans. kolohe andino attitute (breaking boards in fiji and ripping off his jersey in bali) and ks dropping on parko dosen’t sound right to me. the truth is: u have assholes and good ppl in every country.

      • Kooks McGee

        Kelly burning Parko was heat strategy, not malicious, parko even acknowledged that he would have done the same. But the rest holds true.

      • matt obrien

        Did you just equate Ke11y dropping in (with Priority) on Parko during a heat to “Punching” a fellow competitor in the mouth? wow!

      • david

        on the whole, maybe brazilians, americans, and australians aren’t all that different. in terms of surfing, there is a clear distinction. first, americans and aussies don’t show up in packs of fifteen with every board stickered and only one or two good surfers amongst them and paddle out en masse. second, while many surfers of all nationalities paddle battle for every set wave regardless of wave count or order, per capita brazilians seem to most egregiously hassle. and third, the chances of having your face turned into an acai bowl are far greater when trying to get along with a lineup full of aggro, gracie-inspired brazilians than they are when sharing a break with your average seppo traveler or aussie punter, although every country has its tough guys and bullies. i’ve witnessed this behavior from brazilians numerous times on the north shore, in bali, and in mex. nearly every experience was the same.
        in some ways brazilians have justified their behavior by perpetuating the media concoction of the disadvantaged brazilian competitor–so full of “fire” and “passion” to escape his circumstances, feed his family, and make a name for himself on the world stage that his cocky, aggro attitude is tolerated. this just doesn’t hold water when there are competitors from similar backgrounds all over the world who don’t resort to this behavior. does brazil’s poverty somehow make its surfers more deserving of every good wave that comes in?
        so, nobody elected brazilians as pains in the ass; they appointed themselves, and they wield executive power through sheer force of numbers, aggressive tactics, and threat of force.

        • Kevin

          Well Said, I never knew why it has been accepted. there is no excuse to act like that in the water especially doing it in packs and training outside of surfing (i.e. jujitsu) to be ready to fight whoever contradicts your shitty and selfish surfing surfing habits. Although I haven’t seen the footage I bet that cock bastard Jamie O is in the wrong. Ricardo Dos Santos seems super cool in all of his interviews and is a step away from the hardcore competitive Brazilians.

          • YD

            So what you are saying is that both JOB and Ricardo are exceptions in terms of behaviour. That’s exactly how stereotyping works.

        • pigwidgeon

          aussies surfers also shows up in packs and they can be quite loud also lol. i think it’s cheaper to travel like that. my worst surf experience was with a bunch of drunken disrespectful aussies in mex.

        • Razo Tropical RJ

          The answer to your question is no. What happens is that the waves here sucks, so when them see a perfect spot they stay like kids in a park, its like the same regarding Gringos/brazilian pussy

          • alexander supertramp

            hell yea love that brazillian ass, thats all that shitty country has to offer beside cheap drugs

          • poa051 .

            Brazilian also have a huge dick to offer to your mom… Just bring her and she will smile again..

        • Mike Dillehay

          well said. in the mentawais the brazilians are renowned for being kooks, many boats refuse or say they are booked if a brazilian bunch wants to book a trip. what does that say ? aussies party and are roughnecks, but they are cool with everybody in the lineup. i would never put them on the same level. brazilians reflect the society they came from. and they wonder why even when in the wct they cant get a sponsor. that says alot. i think adriano , gabriel , and maybe one or 2 more get props, but they are a global problem, period.

  • Becca

    I love the “It’s between Ricardo and I”: he is right.
    Whatever happened in the water: it should have remained between them. No one has the perfect story.
    Besides, Fights do happen between men, but that’s not a great behavior to adopt, especially in a great sport as surfing.
    Surfing already has a bad reputation/ad with high uses of drugs and traffic. If you add to that fights like the one which occurs today, people will just think of all the surfers as brain-dead assholes who just punch each other, with no education and a very bad temper, unable to bring money back home. That’s just not accurate.

    Hey, Jamie boy, you are either sorry or not. Make up your mind. And Stab, why have you changed the article? Giving our poor, humble Jamie boy the last words? Thinking about the hawaiian season already?

  • Pedro Neri

    I am Brazilian, and first of all, would like to apologize for the stupid and childish attitude of Ricardo posting bs on social media trying to get the country involved in an issue such as a surf contest heat ‘physical altercation’. Would also like to apologize for the ‘inbred apes’ shitting though their fingers here on the commentaries. And, I mean, not only the brazilian ones, but also american, aussie, and hawaiian. I am brazilian, 29yo, and fight jiu-itsu since I was 8, even though I am a very polite and reasonable person. Also in the line up. Ive been traveling around for a while and been living in Germany for the past 3 years, and got to meet ppl from all over the world, really, all over. More than 30 different countries. And I can say neither brazilians nor hawaiians are the most impolite and aggressive people around. Even though BOTH play an ‘important’ role in it. But, please, let us try not to generalize, ok? Because THAT is a primitive ‘inbred ape’ way of thinking. So… what I also came here to say is: first – Jamie is the kind of pro surfer who proudly claims to be a free surfer, shooting and selling videos of his perfect backyard waves, not giving a single shit about asp contests. So, why would he be sooo concerned about making through the trials in such event? Willing to literally give his blood for it? Bit weird. Seems to be a little bit more of an ego battle than a professional surfer career one, coming from Jamie. Ok. Nothing justifies the Ricardo’s attitude either. Even though if we tried to balance and figure out why did these guys act like that, it would be a bit more understandable having a warm and engaged attitude coming from Ricardo, who has this event as his biggest goal in the year. Especially considering Jamie proudly claims not be giving a shit about any contest. And second – how the heck can a hawaiian surfer come here to point fingers at the brazilians behavior in the line up? Seriously…? Well, just hope we start growing up and evolving as human beings, and stop by instance generalizing individual attitudes as being diplomatic ones. Actually, that is how wars start.

Apoio uma punição para os dois da parte da ASP e estou torcendo para que isso não se torne uma rivalidade ainda maior entre Brasil e Havaí, pois isso é triste para o nosso esporte!!

      Abraço.

    • Razo Tropical RJ

      Pedro, you apologize a lot.
      Why didn’t you wrote a book donkey ?
      Or better, send your CV to a surfmag, you can write a lot there.

    Can all the brazilians stop trying to post comments in English, its mindnumbing trying to read what they are saying. Get over yourselves.

  • Peter Hoelandt

    Caint we all just…get along?

  • heissenberg

    I guess we should rule out any accident cause Ricardo already posted on instagram and there’s no evidence other than a fat lip.

  • Luiz Filipe

    The rest of the Brazilian people sorry, but Ricardo dos Santos does not represent me, he is an idiot and should have picked up more!! I am ashamed to see other Brazilians wanting to get confused because of a guy who really just wants to draw attention!
    I’m from Santa Catarina (where Ricardo was born), and have already divided the outside with him a few times, I can say that he is the kind of guy extremely provocative and if J.O.B do that to him was because “Ricardinho” deserved!

    • Luiz Filipe

      and more: Ricardo dos Santos had nothing to talk on behalf of the Brazilian people, this is between him Jamie! Using instagram against Jaime was a great cowardice!!

    i’m pretty sure Chris Cote wrote this. i think that’s funny cuz he pretty much hates the brazzos as well. job is pretty much fooked. i heard there’s a bounty on him. the racist remarks on brazilians are out of control imo. fook… this is only surf.

  • disqus_FjaGZ6QLXL

    what a low class move by ricardo. Tempers flare and people do stupid things, but to post it on a social media platform in order to place blame on the other person is such an immature act. Shame on both of these idiots, but seriously Ricardo, grow up.

  • disqus_MfRfZ6b4cM

    Seriously, if something like this happened in baseball or football, ESPN would show it over and over again. Why can’t we see the clip?

  • da_pussay

    Jamie is cool and all brazilians are fags end of story.

  • Santiago

    That’s what happens with brazilians, they’re so nationalist and claim they’re better at everything! Who the fuck do they think they are? Now they’re everywhere and think they’re fucking locals on every break in the world. Well done jamie, time for them to back off a little

  • mike55555

  • Michael

    JOB for president yo! but seriously: where the heck is the video of this?

  • Gulliver

    The only thing the brazzos have contributed to surfing is the stinkbug, and acting like crybabies when they don’t get their way. JOB should get a card straight into the finals for that crack-a-lacka.

  • Mike Hawk-Hertz

    everybody hates surfing with brazillians even if they have some friends.
    Brazillians need to be more respectful to their fellow surfers if they want this this to change. Threats of violence=caveman nation!

  • kookregulator

    hell yea Jamie O nice work…you did what everyone else has wanted to do when little bitches try to get aggro out in the water…I guess some people have to cry like a pussy online and gang up on you when they get slapped

    “It was not a big deal. Yeah, we’re men, and these things happen” — JOB.

    All I see here are a couple of little boys.

    2 million people strike over the spending of money for the world cup that could help you twits get an education and your health care suckkkks. not to mention the surf in meh and swarming with BullSharks.. yea your country rules. Go Brazil ! … fucking Monkeys.

  • Marcelo Maraviglia Almeida

    I think it wasn’t a fight betwen countries, it was a fight betwen 2 guys ( pro surfers) who would want win the heat and disrespected all of us ( if i want watch
    a fight i watch a ufc) and we cannot generalize Brazilians, hawaiian or ozzys i am brazilian and i know many fucking guys overhere as i know good hawaians in my trips around the world and some fucking guys, ozzys as well, americans, europeans, we need to think a lot b4 says something!!! we need PEACE in everywhere!!!

  • tommy_one

    Strange how Brazilians flock to Hawaii and never won a Triple Crown just cause trouble with that Latino Hispanic pride. If you can’t behave in someone else’s house stay at home.

  • Steve Woo

    Ahhh social media…looks like we’re all losing now. The incident was stupid, posting a pic of your busted lip even more stupid, but most of commentary to follow win the “Stupid Prize”…Honestly, I’ve been as guilty as the next guy when it come to stereotyping. We all have pre-conceived ideas of each other, some based on our own past experiences, more often based on BS we read or hear about. When you actually sit down with people and talk to them, you will usually find more similarities than differences…BUT it took me 30+ years of traveling the world is search of that “magic wave” to figure it out. It will be a scary day for the world when we figure out we’re all from the same tribe. Till then they will be very content to help us keep fighting against each other. I know, just some old guys opinion…continue on….

  • Bob

    what makes you Brazilian or Australian? cause you were by chance born there? cause your parents were born there? what a crock, if your going to base your identity on where you and your family is born, then why dont you include your ancestors? trace it as far as you can and you will see that eventually we all came(modern human) from the same place- Africa That is, get over this nationalism horse shit, its an illusion.

    I dunno what happened but what a bitch posting that to instagram. That’s a woman’s social media thing to begin and then to post a cut lip and call out Obrien… Total bitch move by the Brazilian.

  • .,

    ricardosantos90
    Ok @stabsurf, that was @whoisjob version. Lets make it clear, and find a solution like big men. I didnt start any fight, and everyone knows that. The only reason that i made it public is because he said that i was going to have a hard time in Hawaii, then I told him, if you gonna take it to hawaii, ill send it to Brazil as well… That was the truth, and you know that Jamie! Like i said before, i dont need this to go any further, but im not a kid anymore, if you wanna find a solution, lets do it! @sunnygarcia @borg808

    Ricardo’s side of the story. Fair enough by Ricardo, and overall he seems to be right. Fuck Stab, what the fuck kind of journalism is only looking into one side of the story. They seem to be on the nut of every north shore Hawaiian (I wonder why…pussies)

    • Mike Hawk-Hertz

    Fock this shit between nations and national pride. This is betwwen 2 surfers in a competition.I have seen all this shit before. One surfer snakes another , the other looses it for 2 seconds by slapping the bitch and gets branded a whore.
    Social media put that in your pipe and smoke it.

  • the big cheese

    you be a wee baby and take photos of your pussy injuries, go suck ya mumas tittie wee fella. have fun in hawaii clown.

  • Jean-Marc T

    J.O.B’s attitude is that punching people is normal and fine… That says it all:
    “It was not a big deal. Yeah, we’re men, and these things happen.”

    These things might happen in his world, but it has no place in professional surfing. J.O.B is a disgrace to the sport of surfing and hopefully the ASP will sanction his attitude and behavior. That might help him grow up a little and realize men don’t do that, but kids do.

    • Razo Tropical RJ

      hey french bitch, surfing is not for faint-hearteds.
      It does happen, waves are like pussy, remember that.

  • disqus_YVHokEUBWx

    Ricardo is a good man and he just wanted to give satisfaction to his fans about what happened because it was wrongful act! PEACE!

  • Gary

    what kind of jacket is Jamie wearing?

  • Huyseman

    IMO Jamie should have had a 10 for artistic and technical surfing. Throw a punch while riding a wave in Chopes is far from being easy..

  • Whitefolkswithdreadsarefunny

    First (blow)JOB rapes turtles then punches folks for no good reason. Despite his claiming “Hawaiian”, JOB is really just a haole redneck. He would be totally at home in Riverside or San bernadino counties.

  • headjudge

    Hi, my name is Jamie No Brain and I punch people whenever I get pissed!

    Hey Ricardo, you don`t represent me. I never lost my dignity.

  • Stuffs1

    all i know is that the Brazilian woman i have met are hot and pretty cool, the dudes seem like there is just a touch to much testosterone flowing…… and no matter who was wrong in the situation Dos Santos was a Little girl when he ran to social media to cry like a little bitch……and any Brazilian who stands up for that is quite sad….and a little bitch to… it will be interesting to see if this escalates into Hawaii

    • Carlos Eduardo Firmeza

      I´ve read a lot of comments here. I am from Brazil and have travelled abroad a lot and bumping to other brazilian guys quite often. My personal side view is that most of brazilian guys out there are immature and depreciative to other nationalities. All they talk about is to fuck girls and cant even have a decent conversation in order to get laid. Of course there are some cool ones. One thing said I agree is the fact that we dont have decent waves and most of us turn into kids in the water and forget about everyone else in the line up.

  • Wade

    I have done more damage just brushing my teeth, put the photos away Ricardo, have some viagra & harden up.

  • sean lees

    Who is JOB? He’s a d*ck. A well known one at that. His taking a swing or two at people in the water is not at all surprising. What is surprising is how little coverage this is getting. Where is the video? Are the media outlets too afraid of Billabong retaliation (ie withholding advertisement money?) Lastly, this: as a long term resident of the South Pacific – Fiji – I don’t want to see JOB aggro-ness in our waters. If and when you come to Fiji, leave your bullsh*it at home. Bula!

  • Peacemaker

    come on guys far too much shit flowing about this minor altercation. I have seen worse in everyday lineups. Suckit up move on put the keyboard away and get in the fuckin water and cool off.

  • Luis

    hi,

    i’m portuguese and speak the same language as the brazilians.
    No one speaks for their country.Not even the presidente!
    Even Ricardo has reason…lost it when asked JOB to lower his head…
    This is a matter of adults being spoken by 2 spoiled children…
    Put them (both) in the rigth place!

  • facam

    Cheap shot by RDS engaging the whole country in the issue. But if he’d not posted about the aggression on Internet, nobody would have known about it. Because, AS USUAL, the ASP pretends nothing happened. The ASP never messes with hawaians. No punishments whatsoever. In some way, brazilians are always screwed by them. Just remember: Sunny vs Neco, Makua vs Paulo Moura, Barca vs Adriano, and so on and on and on. It is for the amount of times this sort of things happen, that brazilians think it’s some issue against all of them.

    Some brazilians should learn to respect the lineups and other surfers (actually, some Aussies, Americans, Hawaians,etc. should learn it too, they are not exactly gentlemens, in behaviour and etiquette). But people should realise also that there’s something called “culture”. Having fun in packs and beeing loud is, in some way, a trace of brazilian culture. Sometimes we don’t realise it can be offensive to other people. Some realise it and try not to do it. But they don’t see it as a lack of respect.

    People should stop trying to impose their culture to the rest of the world. They think their way is the right way. That has been happening in the WT now too. They should accept that some people act different . But that is not an excuse for us brazilians to hassle and snake in the lineup. “When in Rome, do as the romans do”!

    There are assholes and nice people in all countries. The rest is cultural difference. If somebody is out of line in your lineup, teach/show him how it works. If he’s an asshole, and won’t respect it, then teach him the hard way.

    Social Network has given a voice to assholes, where they can stay anonymous and harass people as much as they want. That’s why JOB has been getting “death threats”. All assholes…and all bullshit.
    BTW, brazilians get threatened all the time in Hawaii, and for real, not in some Facebook bullshit. That’s why Adriano hired a scout after his problem with Barca that year. To stay safe in Hawaii while competing.

  • n scobey

    Ricardo, Hope you enjoyed getting the inside nuggets at pipe the last few years. Guaranteed you won’t survive another winter on the NS.

  • tunerbowl

    fuck brazil

  • facam

    Bottom line is: it happened DURING A HEAT, for Kelly’s sake, and the ASP should punish whoever started it, or both of them. Not pretend nothing happened.

    In any professional sport (Basketball, Volleyball, Football/Soccer…) violence is severely punished. But the ASP never acts like a professional “institution”. They like to call themselves “professionals”, but don’t act accordingly. I guess they are a bunch of dudes just trying to make a living out of surfing. Judging crew included (check out the “Kelly Push” in Tahiti yesterday). Maybe we should extinguish the “P” from ASP…just “ASS” – Association of Surfers. Or Association of Surfing Dudes (ASD).
