As a professional surfer, how do you know when you have truly made it and have reached the pinnacle of the sport? Is it securing a board sponsor, or winning some high profile events, or maybe even topping a poll voted for by the fans? One thing that seems to go hand in hand with reaching the top is having a signature set of boardshorts and the latest surfer to bag a shorts deal is Jamie O’Brien who has teamed with Body Glove to release his own signature boardies.
The Hawaiian already has board sponsors, his own Red Bull TV series and is one of the hottest Pipe riders in the world so it is no surprise that he has now secured a boardshort deal and he has been instrumental in the design of the trunks. Being known for his committed surfing and clowning about in heavy waves with his pal Poopie, Jamie needs a pair of shorts he knows won’t be ripped off and leaving him doing the walk of shame!
The shorts he has helped to create are of a rasta/camo design and feature a waistband that wraps around the whole boardshort that goes straight into the tie, ensuring they will stay up in the heaviest of situations. You can see Jamie and his signature Body Glove shorts in action in the video below and can check out Body Glove shorts in detail here. Do you think having your own signature boardshorts deal is one of the top accolades for a professional surfer to achieve?
