Jamie O’Brien’s Big Island Camping Trip

Jamie O’Brien recently left his home on the North Shore of Oahu for a two-week surfing and fishing excursion on the Big Island. With standard pro-sponsored travel usually consisting of last minute swell-chasing and tropical boat trips, O’Brien and crew got back to basics, four-wheeling into a desolate part of the coast and setting up camp next to a reefy left-hander. Camping supplies included beer, fishing poles, and spearfishing equipment, which is all you need if you’re a handy free-diver. The trip is a great reminder that there are still places close to home where it’s possible to fall off the grid with a few friends.
