Did you know that Jamie O’Brien, the flame-haired star of the world’s heaviest wave (Pipeline, if you had to ask), used to have the nickname “The Little Fat Sausage”?
And that his pants used to wear out in the middle because his little pink legs would rub together?
“I wasn’t obese, just chunky,” Jamie once told me.
Orange skin. Red hair. It isn’t a recipe for popularity but as King of the Pipe Jamie says, “I have been accused of being a bit of a spitfire, so in that way, I absolutely live up to the stereotype. The red hair suits my personality.”
In this episode of his weekly vlog, Jamie joins the three-time world champion and four-time winner of the booger Pipe contest, Jeff Hubbard, at six-foot Pipe, on his own custom-made Catch Surf booger.
What should be a recipe for catastrophe ends in “Jamie owning it from the peak every set,” says Hubb.
