Board transfer, surfing Teahupoo on fire, and now launches drom Teahupoo barrel. Jamie partnered up with Eric Sterman and Brent Bielmann to take a drone to a location where drones are not expected to go.

We were talking about doing it at Pipe or Mainland Mexico, but we never ended up actually trying it. Then we were at Teahupo’o the other afternoon and he looked at me and said, “So you want to get a barrel with the drone?” The waves were perfect and we went for it”, JOB said. What he will do next?
