Better Barrels in 60 Seconds

I received two principal pieces of advice on tuberiding in my formative years, which were:

"Pull in!"


"Pull in, c**t!"

Needless to say, I'm blaming lack of proper advice for my general lack of prowess in the time tunnel.

Everyone needs a hug. The wave face is no exception.

For reals? WTF is a doggy door? Surely it's a cat flap...

Fortunately, you need not muddle on, bereft of tangible tube counsel.

You need no longer be baffled or bamboozled by bazas.

Here, our hero Andy Criere demonstrates appropriate shack skills. He openly flaunts barrel bravado. And you, in a mere sixty seconds of observation, can gain invaluable pit pointers.

Pay keen attention, dear viewer. Because in surfing, as in life, opinions are numerous and varied, open to interpretation and debate.

Shred orthodoxy is nuanced, subjective, a broad church.

Except when it comes to the high arts of tube.

There is no arguing with the man in the barrel.
