JJF Said This Guy Is The Best Tube Rider In The World
Now watch him get kegged at Pipe.
“Do I want to get barreled? Yes. Do I want to paddle out? No.”
You can’t blame Jamie O’Brien for sheepishly strolling down to firing Pipe on the weekend. The guy has been doing it daily since he was four. Like monogamous sex with a long-term partner, JOB has had to mix it up to keep it interesting. Now he gets his kicks out of wrangling foamballs on 9’0” soft tops.
JOB’s an interesting fella who pioneered the one man social media machine model long before it became as saturated as it now is. We spoke to JOB in Hawaii for part of an upcoming project called, ‘How surfers get paid’. There’s a lot more savviness to JOB than what meets the eye.
