Who Is JOB 5.0 - E03
In episode 3, Jamie O’Brien pioneers a new water sport called “Big Wave Raft Surfing”, and Jamie and Poopies tackle 20ft surf on a blow-up raft.
Then Poopies hops in his souped up shopping cart for sewer carting and gaps-of-death.
To cap it off, JOB wins the Oakley Wave of the Winter powered by Surfline contest for a legendary barrel at Pipeline.
While everyone else on the North Shore takes a break on flat days, Pipeline legend Jamie O’Brien has a few ideas up his sleeve for Poopies and the crew. In this season of Who is JOB 5.0, Jamie turns the North Shore into his playground.
Who Is JOB?
O’Brien has said that he was fortunate as a child to grow up near the Banzai Pipeline. He is one of the youngest surfers ever to win a Pipe Masters.
Jamie’s father was a life guard and Jamie has said that one of the things that got him interested in surfing was talking to many of the regular surfers on his dad’s beach.
Some of his contest accomplishments include the Pipeline Masters in 2001, which he took 4th place even after just recovering from a groin injury, and first place at the 2003 Hansen’s Pipeline Pro in 2003 and first place in the 2004 Fosters Expression Trestles and Rip Curl Pipeline Masters.
O’Brien produced two surfing films, Freakshow and Freakside. He also appeared in Blue Crush. He made television appearances on MTV’s Boarding House/Stunt Surfer in 2005. Video and DVDs that he’s been in include Waxed Planet in 2005, Raising the Bar, Super Computer, The Mystic, The Next Generation and Califragulistic in 2004. In 2005 he made Campaign 2 and in 2006 as previously mentioned Freakside.
