Pro surfer Jamie O’Brien catching a wave with one board and riding it with another.
Surfline posted a series of these photos of Jamie O’Brien making this two-board transfer at Pipeline. I turned them into a radical gif! Here’s what Jamie told Surfline about the trick:
The Wave Storm is 8’0″ and thick. It’s like a boat and it paddles better than any board I’ve ever paddled in my life. For the transfer, I use a Bill Johnson little fish funboard. The reason I like it and the reason it came to mind is because I can lie on the nose when I take off.
