2011 WSL Big Wave World Tour Champ/Surf Instructor/Adventure Seeker

Passions: Surfing & his son

Philosophy: Live a healthy honest life and treat others how you wish to be treated

Jamie caught his first wave at age 4 and has been charging the world’s most famous surf spots ever since. He knew that surfing would be his life by the time he was 10. He explains his passion this way, “I’m in sync with nature.”  

The self-described “mellow” waterman gets a rush off riding giants. He won the WSL Big Wave World Tour Championship in 2011, and has his sights set on another title.  When he’s not competing, he’s teaching others how to surf and hopes to start his own Adventure Company.
