Jamie O’Brien, worldclass shortboard surfer and Kai Lenny, one of the most talented young watermen, had a tandem windsurf session at Maui together. Watch the action and you will be impressed how less time it takes to do a waterstart. Jamie is a big name in the surfing scene and his twitter slogan could fit for windsurfing, too: “Waves look better with me on them!” But not now. It needs some more lessons with Kai. But perhaps Jamie would be the first one riding the tube with a windsurfer, as he knows very well how to surf it.
He grew up and lives at the North Shore of Oahu, just next to Pipeline. Pipeline is a dangerous spot, which took him many times to hospital. Jamie was not scared at all to step on a tandem windsurfing board together with Kai and had wild crashes from the beginning on. In the end he had a heavy crash planing straight on the beach, where they lost their fin. But Kai, who is a worldclass windsurfer himself, tought Jamie very well how to windsurf. Watch the action!
Check out wha Jamie has posted during the last days and weeks on twitter.
Haha that was awesome. Never thought I see him windsurf.
