Jamie O'Brien: a board transfer specialist

Jamie O'Brien has taken his signature board transfer to another level. Can you imagine him testing it out at The Wedge, in Newport Beach?

The Hawaiian daredevil can't stop for a minute. His innovative bag of tricks usually involves inflatable toys, beginner surfboards, boogie boards and winch machines.

But what's harder that getting barreled at The Wedge? Maybe a board transfer stunt in the iconic drainer. Still not sure? Let's just hand him the control of the ship.

The Red Bull Cape Fear will run on the 31st August 2014, at Botany Bay, Sydney, Australia.

Hailed as one of the most dangerous surf contests in the planet, the Red Bull Cape Fear expects waves in excess of eight feet pumping above the deadly "Ours" reef, a spot that only comes to life three or four times a year.

The innovative contest format has been designed by the local big wave charger Mark Mathews. Surfers will contest Cape Fear in two disciplines - tow-in with jet-ski assist and the most difficult task in surfing, paddling into monsters.


Laird Hamilton: shooting the Malibu Pier in overhead surf

Blame Laird. The big wave surfer from Kauai decided to shoot the Malibu Pier, at Surfrider Beach, California.

You've got to time it well. Shooting the pier may seem easy, but when the wave travels at full speed you've got to make confident and quick decisions.

Unfortunately, a few lives have been lost while shooting famous surfing piers. This time, Laird Hamilton calculated it well. The ride is quite impressive. Wait, he scored it twice.
