Carlsbad, California (August 10, 2012) Osiris Shoes is proud to announce the signing of surfer, Jamie O’Brien.
As one of the youngest surfers to ever win a Pipe Masters challenge, O’Brien has molded a reputation as an intrepid and fearless surf competitor. His list of accomplishments include being named XGames MVP and gold medalist as well as the Boost Breakthrough Performance Award at Surfer Mag’s Surfer Poll Awards, just to name a few.
“Jamie is the perfect addition to the Osiris team” said Hans Molenkamp, Osiris’ Global Marketing Director. “His surfing and style embodies everything that we represent at Osiris.”
“I’m pumped to be on board with Osiris,” said O’Brien. “Their shoes are super rad and definitely caught my attention. I’m looking forward to what’s to come.”
Doug Weston, co-owner and VP of Sales for Osiris, also expressed great enthusiasm about the new team member; “I’m stoked to welcome Jamie to the Osiris family. His signing continues Osiris’ long standing support of progressive surfing that started with the signing of Archy back in ’98. Jamie’s signing will drive some great product innovation.”
O’Brien grew up across the street from one of the most recognized waves in the world, the legendary Hawaiian Pipeline, which began his journey into the surf world at age 5. Now 20 years later, he lives in Haleiwa, Hawaii where he continues to dominate the surf world.
