Soft-tops and step offs at 10 foot Pipe? Well, Jamie's gotta keep it interesting somehow.
When a man surfs Pipeline everyday, and has never missed a good swell and wind combination there, it takes a lot for him to keep it interesting. So, when Jamie O'Brien paddles a soft top longboard out to the world's most dangerous wave when it's 10 foot, with a shortboard on deck and the intention of doing step-offs, you should not be surprised. According to Jamie he blows two wave-of-the-winters here, but honestly we'd rather see him doing step-offs in them than someone knifing the barrel.
