There is a saying that “the person having the most fun in the water is the best surfer on any given day.” By this rationale we would like to put up Jamie O’Brien for the argument of the best surfer in the world. The facts are that he lives in front of one the best waves on the planet and is a standout at every session and contest. He travels the world, surfing amazing waves while making movies like his latest “Who is JOB”.
He only puts on a contest jersey at places like Pipeline or Teahupoo and often times takes the title home. He spends his down time editing his movies, fishing, diving with sharks and enjoying the fruits of his surfing talents. So you make the call – is Jamie O the best surfer on the planet?
