No Pipe Masters for Jamie O’Brien

Story by Elliot Struck

You’ll remember back in August, during the Billabong Pro, Tahiti trials, when Jamie O’Brien and Ricardo Dos Santos both needed scores in their heat, and took off on the same wave. What happened afterwards depends on who you ask, but Jamie told Stab: “I was deeper than him and I had positioning. 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. I didn’t punch him on the wave. 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.”

JOB_RDS_InsertRicardo immediately tweeted afterwards, “Thanks, Jamie O’Brien, for punching me in the face during my heat in the trials,” which wasn’t excellent. But what really annoyed Jamie was when Ricardo turned a scrappy heat tussle into a racial incident. “After the episode, @whoisjob, came to say sorry and make sure that will never happen again,” tweeted 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!”

Said Jamie afterwards: “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.”

And today we discover Jamie’s punishment for getting in a physical altercation during an ASP-sanctioned event. It’s hard to be know who should be more bummed: Jamie, or spectators at the Pipe Masters…

(Stay tuned for update on Ricardo’s penalty status)

Stab: What’s the damage?
Jamie: I can’t surf any of the triple crown events, or the Pipe Masters. I can’t surf in an ASP event until the end of the year. I guess I can surf the Volcom Pipe event. They gave me a fine, too.

What was the fine? I don’t know. I forgot. (Though, Article 155 of the ASP Rule Book, Physical Assault and Mutual Combat, puts a competitor’s first offence at US$5k, plus an awesome mandatory admin surcharge of 10 percent.)

Ok. So, no surfing in an ASP event until January 1? I guess so, yeah. I qualified for the Pipe Masters, too. And then… nope. It. Sucks. It’s their loss. I mean, it’s my loss, but it’s their loss as well, so, whatever. I’ve won it before, I’ve won multiple events out there, so it’s like, at least I’m an entertaining… well, I’m an entertainer I’d like to think sometimes, when I get the right waves. I’m sure anyone is. It’s just my home, all my friends are here, y’know?

The Pipe Masters thing is what sucks most about this, right? Yeah, I mean, I really like Haleiwa and Sunset, but Pipe… I dunno, whatever, it’s all good. Contests don’t mean anything, anyways. I hope the waves just drop, that’s what I hope. I hope everyone comes here for the Pipe Masters and the waves just suck.

What’s been the untold wash-up since that Ricardo incident? Anything we don’t know about? I don’t know anything. This is all I know.

Let’s jump back real quick: How exactly did you find out about this? I got an email from the ASP explaining the logistics. I don’t what happened to Ricardo. But I just think his whole approach to it was real cowardly. And the way I look at it, I don’t just make my living at Pipeline. I live at Pipeline and all my friends are from Pipeline. So, it’s a bit of a mistake by him. It’s all good, I’m not going anywhere, I live here. It’s his problem now.

What are your thoughts on Ricardo getting a fine? I’d like to hope he does too. But the thing is, it’s not like he was gonna be in the Pipe Masters, he’s not able to get in there, y’know? I’m losing more than him, even if he does get the same penalty. Oh, what, he didn’t get to surf fricken Haleiwa or Sunset? The prize purse if you’re in Pipeline is definitely not like Haleiwa or Sunset.

Well, we’re thrilled to see some freesurfing shots and footage this winter, at least. Oh, It. Is. On. Brother.

More to come soon…

  • fuckricardo

    honestly Jamie acted kinda childish in this interview. but ricardo acted like a little bitch from the sounds of it. classic brazilian move

    • .,

      The reason ricardo took to instagram is because Jamie threatened Ricardo for when he comes to hawaii in winter. By publicizing it it means that he wouldn’t get retaliation from Jamie’s Hawaiian friends. Of course Ricardo was at fault too but Jamie is undeniably a massive cunt who brought this on himself

      • fuckricardo

        you don’t think ricardo is going to get fucked with this winter? instagram post or not instagram post you can bet he’s won’t be getting anywhere close to the wave of the winter this year.

        • handyman

          Nah, I reckon its all talk. It always is with Hawaiians..

        • .,

          I dont think he is, Kala Alexander agreed with him

          • Guest

            Kala gets the shit kicked out of him by lifeguards

          • .,

            Since when? As far as I’m aware he is a enforcer at pipe. What the fuck kind of lifeguards beat people up haha, fucking primitive hawaiians. Everytime they have kids they contribute to devolution

      • tunerbowl

        hes still gonna get retaliation from jamies friends…

    meat heads all round. grow up

  • TO

    Fuck the Asp, so done with competitive surfing. These situations that happen in the water is part of the sport. If your gonna burn someone like Ricardo did then you better be ready to duke it out. Feel bad for JOB

  • Guest

    Jamie would lose first round anyway. He thinks he’s some kind of asset to the surfing world, however he’s an irrelevant shadow of what he used to be.

    • Neil

      go watch the last few minutes of the last JOB 3.0 ep.. i think hes surfing better than ever. Looking fwd to the new body glove flick as well.

      • BC

        Im frothing for that video to drop! the whole BG team is pretty nuts!

        • Guest

          body glove is still a company??

      • Brenno

        There are video surfers, and there are competition surfers. On the video you won’t see the wipe outs and the thousand times he hasn’t finished the tricks. You can’t do that on a comp.

    • BC

      ya, ur trippin bud! Dont let the bullshit 3.0 videos full you. The Freakshow is still in full effect. The kids an animal!

    • Rob

      that´s right, JOB is an asshole in all ways, fuck him…

  • soooo bummed

    ricardo is a fool, he won’t surf pipe again, anyone who has lived there knows that this is a fact. hope it was worth it.

  • Manbearpig

    tough all around. JOB can be a dick and probably was but Dos Santos was wrong by bringing Brazil and Twitter into it. It was between two men and if ricardo kept it like that he would have most likely been able to surf on the north shore still but id be very surprised if he does. JOB’s punishment is the pipe masters by the ASP. it looks like Dos Santos punishment is going to be NO north shore fun by the Locals.. I guess you could say Jaime isnt welcome in Brazil but no offense to brazil but they are not even close to equal in terms of surfing. I just hope this lights a fire under JOB to put out some inspired surfing like he did when he was young

    • .,

      He did that because JOB threatened to bring hawaii into it. He did this before Ricardo , so when he said that he will bring hawaii into it, ricardo said if he did do that he would bring brazil into it. Fair enough I think, Stab’s gutter ‘journalism’ is only showing one side of the story to influence opinions.

      • Axel Foley

        well, Ricardo shot himself on the foot.
        Would you rather be banned from Brazil “awesome” beach breaks (Job scenario), or the Hawaiian waves ? (Ricardo scenario)
        Plus sounds like someone is not gonna get a lot of love from Hawaiians this winter.
        If he is lucky he will be able to go back to Hawaii in 10 years.

        • Gus Hansen

          Job shoot himself…
          hawaiians are only in Hawaii, brazilians are everywhere in the world…
          Job is done.

          • Axel Foley

            I know bro, but getting burned out and not surfing hawaii, it’s like having a girlfriend and not have a dick.

          • manlid

            i doubt the average brazzacunt in the lineup is gonna throw down with job

          • Chris

            Hawaiians are also respected surfers all over the pacific. Pacific Islands have the best surf worldwide and the pacific island cultures are all tied and connected. Brazilians have most of the mainland world, but we got the islands bruddah

        • Zoio

          just like Body Glove did sponsoring him… what a joke… maybe they just want to keep it as a local business

    • Rodrigo Ormond

      Fuck Hawaiian that are ignorants and like this thing, whatever…go somewhere else

      • manlid

        fuck u spik haole. stay on your shitty beach breaks hahahahah

          Whatever man, i really like to do what i do and travel around the globe. Enjoy your waves. Hope everyone gets happy as us

      • Chris

        ignorant? do you even know the full story of what happened? Both guys puffed themselves up, like most men do. and @keanu808:disqus don’t let this guy get to you be bigger and show that Aloha, Kill with success bury them with a smile!

        • Rodrigo Ormond

          Whatever man, i really like to do what i do and travel around the globe. Enjoy your waves. By the way nobody is going to kill and do this bury thing unless you want to get in jail

          • Chris

            i think that saying went over your head bud

  • stab

    i just hope jamie doesn’t let ricardo surf pipe rather then jamie hiding behind his mates. and to ricardo, jamie is right saying you tying back to a racial comment.

  • fuckricardox10

    Ricardo is a fucking stupid brazilian bitch.

  • RP

    JOB manned up big time by shaking his hand, and even putting his head down. Maybe too much. Then De Santos turns it into a tabloid event.
    Props to Jamie. De Santos is sooo f’ed this winter. There are some angry dudes that don’t give a rats ass, they are going to be looking for him. Sucks because Bruno is one hell of a surfer.

    • Luca

      the childish bitch (which, what a surprise, I’ve been told is actually a really humble and layback guy) is Ricardo dos Santos.
      Bruno dos Santos (teahupoo winner) is another surfer. they’re not related.

      well, too bad for him. lost his composure online acting like a child and received the penalty.

    • .,

      The reason he turned it into a tabloid event is to prevent retaliation from the hawaiians. Stab are only giving you one side of the story. And what the fuck kind of apology was that, he bitched about Ricardo on stab after he apopolgised

      • Luca

        that a good argument as well.

      • wonkah

        So you think he prevented retaliation from Hawaiians by posting this: “For the Brazilian people I told him to put his head down and be humble as a normal human! Brazil, we got dignity back!”.

  • NSB OAHU

    JUST KNOW RICARDO, U RUINED IT NOT JUST FOR URSELF, BUT FOR 95% OF THE BRAZILIANS TRYING TO SURF PIPE. YOU WILL BE LUCKY IF U MAKE IT IN TO THE LINEUP. I WOULD SUGGEST U STAY BACK HOME IN BRAZIL AND EAT UR ACAI… THIS IS NOT A JOKE

      Such a man NSB OAHU! The world needs more of you! Keep on the rail!

  • .,

    Stab, if you are going to run a story, do it properly with all the fucking information there. Jamie’s story isnt the only side of the story, and like the juvenile fucktard he is he isnt taking any responsibility and bitching like a child at his fine. Jamie threatened to bring hawaii into it, so Ricardo brought Brazil into it, which is fair enough.

    Jamie punched Ricardo because he couldnt get the inside and time was running out in the heat. I agree that Ricardo was being a bit of a prick on instagram but what it comes down to is all Ricardo’s actions were somewhat justified whereas Jamie’s actions were unjustifiable, which he ‘apologized’ for and then preceded to justify his actions and bitch about why he was right

    • brad

      i think your missing the point mate, incident happened in the contest between the two, jamie came and apologised or whatever. end of story. however how can you call Ricardos actions justifiable when he put a photo on twitter/instagram saying “For the Brazilian people I told him to put his head down and be humble as a normal human! Brazil, we got dignity back!”

      It was only after that jamie made further comments. and it doesn’t matter who threatened who first at the end of the day being a surfer i would rather have respect in hawaii then in brazil

      • .,

        Yeah I guess thats fair enough actually

      • Brenno

        It’s a bit of a vicious circle. I can see where Ricardo is coming from when you read the comments on this page for instance. There is a common hate against brazilian surfers in general. There are plenty of monkeys, bitches and so on on these comments. The punch on ricardo’s face in a way comes out of this common hatred and disrespect towards the brazilian surfing community. So I don’t think he was right by saying we got our dignity back but I see it in a way of saying “enough disrespect”.

        JOB is a child who burns the rulebook of the ASP for publicity and now is complaining about the ASP and saying that they are the ones who are missing with him out. It just goes to show he hasn’t learned a thing from this episode. He is still an arrogant prick who will never achieve anything in competition surfing.

        • brad

          i don’t have time for either of them or the ASP but you don’t use social media as a tool to disrespect anybody…and if you do than you have to be prepared to deal with consequences. and i think it makes it worse when you don’t tell the other person your going to do it

          • Brenno

            Just don’t forget this whole thing started because ricardo got punched in the face… somehow JOB became the victim… weird

  • dashhound

    That irrelevant shadow you consider Jamie O to be is still better than 99% of the WCT at Pipe only JJF and Kelly can have a crack with him if pipe is halfway decent.

    • handyman

      He was better that ‘99%’ of the WCT at pipe, but now he’s just a joker who didn’t make many heats last year in the pipe masters or the volcom pipe pro.
      Yes, he gets the occasional bomb at pipe, but that’s only because he dedicates his life to it, not because he is exceptional at it.
      With less pissing around with loser friends (poopies) and more dedication o surfing, I think JOB can offer more (movie?) and become more relevant.

      • dashhound

        You may find Handyman that people who become truly exceptional at something generally have dedicated their life to it to get that way.

        Agreed he has lost a little edge and packed a few pounds on but he is and will always be considered one of the best guys out there.

        • handyman

          Good point, but i think he’s only exceptional at handling the lineup, his surfing is just average (at the moment).
          We saw it in comps last year, and perhaps will see it in years to come. One thing’s for sure, he won’t ever win pipe again if he spends all his time pissing around with his loser friends.

          • me

            You really are un-educated on this topic Handyman… JOB is one of the best all time surfers at Pipe. Period.

      • me

        Hey Handyman…. you ever sat on the beach and watched Jamie surf Pipe??? Obviously not by your comment…. He catches the “occasional” bomb about every 10 minutes, often going switch on them. I have sat on the beach a lot over the last 15 years and from what I have seen, he is the most dominant surfer in the lineup in terms of skill and knowledge of the wave.

        • handyman

          I think it’s important to make a distinction between ‘dominant’ and exceptional. The reality is that at the moment, his skill level in surfing the wave isn’t outstanding, its just his willingness to catch the bombs that roll in because hes a local.

          Evident of that is his heats in the volcom pipe pro and masters last year, where the CT surfers, some of whom had only caught a few waves at pipe, completely waxed him in a heat.

    • Fábio Menegat

      Ricardinho is better he today. Shut up

  • wonkah

    Jamie is just being honest & candid. He says what he thinks, no bullshit. Anyone who has shared a lineup with a brazilian wants to slap them by the end of it, for that reason, I’ll be on Jamie’s side with this story. Ricardo is a hellman, love watching him surf, so will miss that in pipe this season.

    • James B

      Wonkah, Wonkah, Nazi Wonkah

  • John Dove

    How the f isn’t this on video? Surely the trials were filmed.

  • Seabass120

    The best thing that Jamie can do is round up the boys and make sure to make life miserable for the little monkey stinkbug brazzos in Hawaii. Make it so bad that no Brazilian can possibly win a world title unless they’ve won it prior to going to Hawaii and then bar the little twits from all the lineups.

    ….and oh yeah, fuck the ASP and their homosexual, Brazzo-blowing agenda.

    • Guest

      monkey stinkbugs? why dont go eat a platte full of dog shit you fucking stupid gringo ….do you know where is brazil?? cause gringos dont know shit instead of their own pathetic world you fucking ignorant!!!!! go fuck yourself and dont come to brasil, we are waiting for you here u coward fuck!!!!!

      • seabass121

        no one wants to go to brazil bra; third world ghetto fucking up the rain forrest’s. the rest of the world is sitting back watching you monkey stinkbug brazzo’s ruin a. the olympics and b. the world cup. stay there because no one, anywhere wants to surf with your loud-ass machismo attitudes. kooks.

          hahahahahaha, funny comment bro; but not all Brazil is bad take it easy.
          B Surfers are a major issue, but the country itself is super cool, plus some hot chick.
          No waves though, just some garbage beach break.

          • wonkah

            Axel you talk about Brazil like you’ve been there, which you clearly haven’t because there are insane waves there. Even in Rio (not where the contest is held though). I’ve surfed all around and had some of the best, empty waves of my life. Just look at the coastline of Brazil and the islands off it. If you think there are no good setups, you have got to be plain dumb.

          back to the subject

          people think that just because JOB is a great surfer, he is a great person…
          he is a big retarded, dont know shit besides surfing…..
          dont know how to act like a human being….
          thats why he is a “only pipeline surfer” and thats it for him
          i dont know JOB from other things besides pipe or beating someone in hawaii….

          i love JJF, for me, he is the best kid out there, hands down, no question…

          Ricardo dos Santos, is a brazilian retarded as well….

            Undeniable truth is: hawaiians (surfers) are the weakest people in the planet who can’t take defeat just like they can’t handle glory and we all know that for the highest per capta rate of drug abuse and violence in all 50 states of America. All stupid uneducated assholes who claim to be warriors but never step out for a challenge away from their own pack and homes like single childs! Try to intimidate “brazzos” but they still go out there every winter on their own and raise up for the challenges. Where’s Dustin Barca hidding? Pretended to be a man fighting a smaller guy and non-fighter in Tahiti and then shits his pants all over the place crying out when was requested to stand up like a man again in Brazil. Nobody tells the full story but he got his ass raped that day…. cried first but liked later!
            The list just goes on with Sunny G loosing his small mind every time he finds himself under pressure, Bruce’s “I can’t take it” approach during his whole WCT carrier, the eternal 3 x world champ who conquered the world but couldn’t find himself (I’ll keep the respect on this case but it’s a good example-maybe the best), and than this white kid who never grows up Jamie…
            Better to you guys stay in the house and be humble, chill like freddy, JJF, Mike Ho, Etc… just smile like girls wear flowered skirts and say aloha… world’s competing realities isn’t for you. Keep smoking your pakalolo while your land is been taken away… by Jamie Obrian’s kind of people with instruction and real guts. Mahalo!

      • Seabass120

        Very true Chris. What’s better than all of it is knowing how easy it was to troll this story with the truth and watch all the limp-wristed Brazzos go nuts.

        yeah i’m sorry you live in a so crowded place…at least in pictures looks nice

  • BC

    didn’t Jamie burn that rule book a while back? He shouldn’t have to obey the rules. ha. In all seriousness the ASP is kinda blowing it. People want to see the best of the best out there and Jaime is THE best at Pipe. He’s better switch then most guys are normal. Its good for the event to have him there. Ricardo is a baby and the ASP should have left the drama back in Tahiti.

    • frothdog

      ASP is fukd, and getting worse by the contest, hope they consider how over it every1 is, and have a major overhaul & tune up b4 next years season. rules are there for every1 or it would be a yemeni cluster goat fuck, but yeh they shoulda just fined him

    • Rob

      he is not the best at pipe, kelly and JJF are better…

      • Axel Foley

        I agree, but if we talk about switch foot, it’s a different scenario.
        ASP does not even know how to score the waves that he drop switch foot, or switch while inside the barrel.
        He is the only one doing, and take some crazy guts and skills. Skateboarding switch foot is highly scored, because they are technically doing stuff that some guys can only do on regular stance.

        • seriously

          They scored his switch waves like he was surfing them regular.
          Fucking morons…

      • BC

        sorry bud, ur wrong there. JJF and Kelly are some of the best but J.O.B. cant be touched as far as consistency goes. I Live on the the North SHore, surf pipe when its small and shoot photos when its big. I see it all first hand, up close and personal. Ya, JJF as beat Jaimie out there before in contests, but contests dont really mean shit.

      • Neil

        Kelly will publicly say and has that JOB is the guy out there. Who do you think JJF learned from?

        I dont live on or near the NS but had the pleasure of watching from the beach on a big day at Pipe this last season and even from the sand it was obvious who was dominating the lineup.

        Anyone slagging the guys skills are jsut plain ignorant, the same as anyone calling out all Brazillians is ignorant too.

        The ASP is the enemy here, not the Surfers involved. As a Hawaiian it must be a huge diss to not be able to compete in the triple crown.

      • Chris

        Yea dude JOB is argueably the Mr. Pipeline of this decade. Like the 60s was Noll, 70s- Lopez sunny and hakman were the local boyz and the aussies, and south africans Rabbit, richards, thompsons. 80s was Derek Ho, 90s, Burns and Carrol, then came JOB

    • disqus_RLFW2pX47V

      Well, just because he is great at pipe doesn´t mean he can do anything he pleases, does it? And besides, he is so , but so good that when he punched Ricardo he was losing the heat..and we are talking about heavy Teahuppo here..

      • BC

        im pretty sure it was small, on shore and non barreling Teahupoo. Far from heavy.

  • tunerbowl

    don’t understand how the ASP can just fine fuckers….and shit….FUCK THE ASP…..fuck ricardo that faggot bitch….dumb brazzi fuck…..fuckin stay in brazil and do chop hops and shit

  • Harvey Wiz

    get up job your a bro from way back and you keep surfing real for all corners of the globe. guttered we cant see you surf at pipe but fuck that double last name cock sucking faggot dont let him get another wave at pipe put his head on the chopping block chea bruhh

  • Coldbeats

    ASP do yourself a favour and don’t forget the roots of surfing. Dismissing commentators because they bet a beer and disqualifying a viewer magnet and charismatic individual such as Jamie is just lame bureaucratic wanna be serious. Surfing fans are not Tennis fans and in every proper sport you sometimes have controversies and small fights. That’s what makes it exciting.

    • Luca

      “charismatic individual such as Jamie”

      WTF?

  • YD

    No one spreads hate better than Stab (hence the mag’s name). It’s the second time they publish JOB’s point of view and bullshit version of the story. Way to go Stab, good job.

  • jack

  • felipe

    so whats up? Yeah, I mean, sorry that we can’t see Jamie and all that but the guy was wrong back at choppes. He assaulted Ricardo and he was wrong we can’t forget that. I gotta say that I’m happy because NOW it seems that he is being punished by HIMSELF, and not with a sad smile saying his sorry. I’m also sad about the repercussion of this. The fucking neanderthals of Hawaii and Brazil (this time but it happens all over the world) are already showing an agressive posture, and Ricardo, a guy that always showed respect to hawaiian waves and atmosphere, Was one of the chargers last winter and now probably wont surf (i hope i’m wrong) THIS WAS A SITUATIONAL THING BETWEEN THEN BOTH WITH REPERCUSSION TILL NOW BY THE ASP, STOP ASSOCIATING IT WITH PREJUDICE AND YOUR OWN PROBLEMS. FUCK.

  • me

    Someone please show a video of this incident… can almost guarantee, after many first hand experiences all over the world that the Brazzo was hassling like a little rat.

    • brazzo

      In a heat? Like the situation between north-american CJ Hobgood and the australian Dean Morrison a couple years ago? Or the physical altercation between the hawaian RIP Andy Irons and Mick Campbell? Those I mentioned were video-recorded and no Brazzo on it.

  • Alex

    stab you are inciting violence and this legion of Hawaiian monkeys is dangerous

  • Pedro Neri

    Why the hell are you all little turds spreading hate here? Why to fckin hate a whole country (hawaii/brasil) because one fckn single one-on-one incident? The little fight between them, (THEM), was completely normal and it happens. Not pretty, but it happens. Ricardo made one extra mistake by trying to bring the country into his problem and posting shit on twitter like a little spoiled teenage girl. And Jamie has all the reason to be pissed by the asp decision of banning him from his backyard once a year ‘party’. Even though it is STILL between the two of THEM and asp. So, all you wannabes, just plz STFU and go get a life. Because there is no fucking reason to hate each other. Grow the fck up!

  • Stolk David

    this is a SERIOUS ERROR AGAIN by the ASP;instead of accepting that in the heat of the moment things can get a bit hectic but with an apology from Jamie that should have be IT;while no one got hurt either.WTF were they thinking.They have now turned a little incident into a freaking major international incident which no one NEEDS;Dont get me wrong got nothing per se against the ASP but they do need to get their bell rung on a couple of issues latelyF.FREAK

  • mdg

    this is too much, stab.
    what a creep work. instead of chasing facts, other witnesses, videos and proves, they tie hands with one (and only this one) of the parts involved and give it space and voice to spread any kind of bullshit it wants. really, this report was as bad as it can be.

    this must be no journalism, this must be no comunication, this must be nothing.

    my last read at stab, my last comment in this childish forum.

  • Moksha

    This is a ridiculous piece by Stab, extremely biased and only inciting more madness for the North Shore season coming up. This Jaime kid started this whole thing, started the physical contact with Ricardo and afterwards used his supposed influence in Hawaii to threaten the guy. Ricardo is a fucking gentlemen everywhere he goes. And Stab does this piece almost stating what a tragedy it is that this kid won’t be in the Pipe Master. Read the answers this guy gives for god’s sakes, the lack of clarity in his answers – “Sucks. It’s their loss. I mean, it’s my loss, but it’s their loss as well, so, whatever” – then he hope the waves suck for the contest. How old is this guy? He has the mental maturity of a 9 year old. And all these guys on this site sucking his dick, are you kidding me? This is a selfish and arrogant human being, that would leave you stranded if you were overboard and he passed by you in a yatch. You guys need to open your eyes to the true good hearts in this world, and stop blowing who you mistakenly think is so”cool”.

    • guigz

      respect

    • TO

      You must know Jamie really well to be saying all this shit. I met him a couple months ago and he is one of the chillest, funniest guys i’ve ever met and one hell of a good surfer. If you actually knew how to surf you’d stop sucking Ricardos dick and support one of the best surfers in the world

      • Moksha

        yeah cool guy, you were probably in that yatch with him…

    • bigbudah

      haha if richardo wasn’t Brazilian it wouldn’t be nearly as much of a big deal. The fact that he is and acted like a little bitch just added fuel to the fire and the “fucking brazzo’s” stereo type. Whether either of them are good guys or not has no relevance what so ever. It’s becoming a common occurrence that brazilian behaviour is a major source of angst in the surfing community and people are just getting fed up with their bullshit… don’t get me wrong JOB acts like a total ballgrabber also

  • Rodrigo Oliveira

    So much people in need of education in this comment page. It’s a real pity. Surf is about freedon, nature, fun and respect, you fools. Read a bit more and you’ll learn that all the empires eventually goes down from inside.
    Respect people.
    By the way, JOB is a real great surfer, but it does not change he’s a big asshole. One thing do not change the other.
    Fists are the weapon of the stupid.

  • Brenno

    boo hoo ASP won’t let me compete. This coming from a guy who uses a picture of him burning the asp rule book as advertisement to show how cool he is. Righter after the incident he apologized sayin it was his fault. Now he is coming up with a different story just so he is a victim. Grow up arsehole.

  • pedro

    JOB is a great surfer, but EVERYONE knows that he is a big ASSHOLE, u just need to watch his web series, and Ricardo is a nice calm and respectful surfer, so, its OBVIOUS that the wrong side of the history is jamie side, hawaians should stop making themselves look scary because brazzos are THE BEST in fighting, and can easily make hawaians look like little chickens, BJJ

  • Danillo Paim

    Stab Magazine, always making arbitrary stories, trying to be polemic, but instead, as usual you are just bringing violence to the sport. Any respectful journalism focused publication would have Ricardo’s side on the same history… After all every history got two sides, and it’s pretty obvious that you chose one. Respect the basic rules of journalism, a magazine is not made to express opinions but to tell the stories…

    I wanna know why Red Bull is still paying JOB. Here’s one of their team riders openly hoping for everyone to come to Pipe and get skunked. Well, that “everyone” includes his fellow Red Bull team riders who are looking forward to one of the most high profile events of the year. It’s a wave that could generate some great content for Red Bull’s media department yet here’s one of their marquee surfers hoping for the waves to be crap. It’s a shitty attitude from an aging, unattractive surfer (read: not marketable) that I just don’t see aligning with the Red Bull brand. They have a progressive image yet his web series consists mostly of stunts/skits (which CKY, Big Brother and Jackass did at least 10 years ago) peppered with a little bit of surfing.

  • giancarlo guardascione

    O Brein is mumbling stumbling idiot. proof to moms and dads: stay away from home school… Jamie, ask Dane Reynolds, the surf world will move on without you. DONT listen to strung out north shore leaches clinging to yr crotch who tell you different, now you have to pay them AND the ASP,,,, remember: there will always be a better, marketable, smarter surfer out there (in this case said better surfer will probably be able to make it through an entire Dr. Suess book)

    Hey Stab. First of all nice job presenting one side of the story… awesome journalism and shit. You’ve done well to ignite hatred, racism and competitiveness in the comments! It’s not like surfing is about friendship and having fun or anything. Thanks for moderating your comments also, it really shows that you don’t give a fuck about pushing a race vs. race agenda.

    This is so fucking immature. JOB saying you hope everyone comes to Hawaii and the waves just go flat for pipe?!?!?
