I am no where at the skill level to be riding tubes, but all i watch is vids wishing I were. I know some are faster, more hollow, more punishing, etc.
If someone's goal was to ride a barrel(crouched or standing up) as soon as they were at the skill level....what location/wave do you think would be the idea place to get the first one. I guess I am asking what barreling wave would be the most forgiving or require the least time aqcuiring skills to paddle out to?
Probably a dumb question,..but it is a dumb question that has been on my mind for a while.
Sorry if wrong sub forum section. didnt see any section on skills, training, or learning
The kind without sharp reefs under them.
East coast beach breaks are probably good to learn barrel riding. You can get barrelled when it's like waist hight at times. That, or a mellow peeling point like Rincon.
If a guy wants to get tubed, maybe sarcasm isnt the answer?
Even though he was making a funny, I would agree with seldom seen, until the sand pumped happened Ocean County and MC NJ had some rather user friendly barrels, comparatively, short paddle outs, but somewhat unforgiving waves
OBX can shack for days too.
I know Clemson surf was being sarcastic, but Fl has some of the least tubular waves aside from SC and GA on the whole EC, from my experience.
My gawd I hated FL, I reckon some spots have their day, but as a whole its waves are suited for geriatrics, and the spots that do tube will have more bros out with entitlement attitudes than you can shake a stick at
