How To Find An Endlessly Barreling Point
Natxo Gonzalez at the end of the rainbow.
We’re not telling you where this is.
But, you probably already know.
The amount of clips that have come out of this joint in the past nine months have been enough to have me — and probably every other goofy-footed munter — perusing plane flights and furiously scouring google maps.
Despite what the footage shows you, Natxo Gonzalez tells us it’s not all fairytale visions and rainbows.
“It was a surprise that we scored that session,” he explains. “We got really bad waves for a bunch of days before, and we weren’t expecting it to be good. Then, we checked around the corner, and it was absolutely firing.
I’ve ever seen anything like that in my whole life.”
After snapping his board on a quadruple-up floater, Natxo borrowed Ramon Navarro’s blade, and shortly after was hucking deuces to his friends in the channel.
Moral of the story? Always look around the corner.
“See you in the barrel, me looking out.”
