Day Like This – Jamie O’Brien

Check out this ‘day in the life’ short film of Hawaiian surfer Jamie O’Brien; one of the top surfers at Pipeline, on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, by French photographer & Desillusion Magazine editor in chief, Sebastien Zanella.

P.S. Look out for the large painting of Pipeline in Jamie’s house by the late, great Hawaiian surf artist Clark Takashima!

‘Jamie O’Brien is not like most surfers. Call him antisocial or even over-social, Jamie is the personification of a paradox. Publicly against competitions, he is also one of the most mediatised surfer out there, most notably with his web series “Who is job”. Regardless of the fame, Jamie lives in front of one the best waves on the planet, “Pipeline”, and is a standout at every session.’
