Jamie O’Brien or JOB will get you in the end, one way or another. If it isn’t his lively aerial maneuvers or his domination at the world’s most dangerous surf break, Pipeline, it’ll be his high-energy surf films or outspoken opinions on today’s competitive surfing.

Jamie O’Brien is a free surfing acrobat as well as a big wave hell-man and with his childhood playground being one of the most recognized waves in the world, his supremacy in the surfing world’s ultimate proving ground is just starting. Surfing the wave since he was 5 years old, Jamie’s as cozy at Pipeline as most surfers are at their local beachbreak. His local surfing knowledge led him to one of the most honored titles in all of surfing: a Pipeline Masters title, which he won in 2004. With his 2008 win at the Da Hui Backdoor Shootout, Jamie O’Brien became the first surfer to win a Pipe Masters, Pipeline Pro, and Backdoor Shootout titles let alone his recent win at the 2010 Volcom Pipeline Pro.

Although big wins at big waves, including Pipe and Teahupoo, show that he can contend, the Haleiwa local’s direction has been free surfing with resulting awesome video sections and magazine covers. His own films, Freakside and Freakshow, which Jamie edits, produces, directs and stars in, are now part of the surf world.

By pairing together his aerial antics with a bombardment of dangerous reef stunts in his backyard on the North Shore, Jamie is going to keep people coming back for his third film, Who is JOB?
