Seemingly Everyman-Sized Backdoor Proves Not To Be!

At first glance, this looks like a user-friendly, everyman-sized Backdoor. 

The type of waves in which you, or I, or someone named Gary could paddle out and thread a long, Jello-blue tube without risk of death or dismemberment. 

But as we've learned from this JOB vlog, that assumption may well be incorrect.

After having what could only be described as a "super fun" morning session, Jamie invited his personal vlog-maker, an Oregon/Carlsbad transplant named Jackson, to complete his Hawaiian tube quest by securing a Backdoor barrel. 

It was... not easy. Granted, from what we've seen of Jackson, he doesn't seem like the most capable surfer (certainly less-so than JOB's former Carlsbad associate, Poopies), but if this kid can't get barreled with Jamie physically pushing him into waves, what hope do the rest of us have?
