Here's The Skeleton Bay Footage You've Been Wanting
The sand bottom dream is a difficult ride.
We all know that guy. The one who watches someone fall in a barrel at Pipe, Chopes, or Skeleton Bay and shouts behind their computer screen in disbelief. All while having never surfed any of the above breaks. These are generally the same guys that screw a Kelly Slater nub between their quad set up so they can get "more vertical" and quote wave heights under head high in odd numbers. That’s beside the point; the point is tube riding is surfing’s finest art. And, whether backside or frontside, Skeleton Bay, as perfect as it looks in a photograph, is a hard wave to ride. Watch how even Benji Brand, Koa Smith, Aritz Aranburu and Corey Lopez are having trouble stalling for their cover ups. Lastly, go ahead and turn your volume all the way down.
