WATCH: Jamie O’Brien’s Board transfer at the Wedge. An art.

You may have seen the footage of your favourite Hawaiian madman J.O.B yet again burning the rulebook (so to speak) of logical behaviour in the ocean by doing a mid-wave board transfer from log to shortboard in some heavy hurricane-induced Wedge late last month. We’ve all seen him do it before, but a new appreciation for such an act must be brought to light with the release of this footage by the fellas over at Catch Surf¬†of which shows clips of J.O.B in the lead up to the wave. The short video answers some of the obvious questions that you were probably asking when you first saw it including “how the f*** did he even get out there?” Anyway, here’s an ode to the art of board-bailing and taking a closeout like a man.
