Sean O'Brien: the windsurfing film maker

Sean O'Brien will be windsurfing on the race course for the Starboard Dream Team, in 2011. With a great start of the season, he's already become the Oceanic and Australian champion for the fifth time, at the 2011 Formula Downunder Pro.

The 27-year-old from windsurfer will join Starboard’s elite racing team on the PWA and Formula World Tour, during 2011. With his first PWA season in 2010 under his belt, rising star Sean has been able to make some waves on the windsurfing circuit with his skills in video editing and all things digital.

Many riders have recognized his work behind the lens on some of the popular windsurfing movies doing the rounds online, last summer.

"I got my first big break as a 13 year-old kid riding Starboard boards, in Australia, and working at a shop that sold Starboard whilst I was still at school. I rode Starboard boards for many years, until a few years ago my work and travel took me to different areas out of Starboard’s scope. However I always had a feeling I would one day end up back under the Tiki flag, as the brand had given me such a great platform to develop when I was a youngster", sai O'Brien.

Sean enjoys shooting film and videos for the web. So, expect to see a lot of cool new videos around.
