Riding the pipe is downright a dangerous sport and it takes quite a thrill seeker to wish to surf such waves. Take red haired surfer Jamie O’Brien from Hawaii and you have the perfect example. Daredevil and immune from the apparent hazards of this sport including sunburn, O’Brien is a top contender. Recently at the Red Bull surf event in his home island, Jamie scored a perfect 10 and lost to another surfer. My first thought was this could only happen to a redhead.
