Filipe, Barron, And Yadin Battle For The Heaviest Shorey Funnel
Who’s got the best tube chops – Brazil, Hawaii, or WA?
“I was literally on the beach 10 seconds ago, then I paddled out in eight seconds, and then two seconds later I was on that wave. Boom!”
That was Yadin Nicol after sliding through a cute turquoise funnel down in the deep Caribbean, where one of the world’s best shoreys resides.
And isn’t there something inherently enticing about a wave that breaks close to shore, especially when it gargles and spits as 9/10 dentists recommend?
On their recent voyage to the tropics, Filipe Toledo, Barron Mamiya, and Yadin Nicol dueled for the deepest dry-sand tube, with Filipe taking the early lead, Barron making a strong push through the middle, and Yadin stumbling at the finish line.
With his competitors resting on the shoreline, Yadin snuck back into the lineup and chipped-in to a gurgly mutant, pumping thrice before entering its bowels, disappearing behind the foam then emerging with the spit.
“Wave of the trip!” said Mr. Toledo. “I give it a 9.93, only because he had the GoPro in his mouth.”
Is there any better way to spend a day on this planet?
Oh, and big ups to the Jack Ladder track that backs the second half.
