Seemingly Everyman-Sized Backdoor Proves Not To Be!
As you watch JOB thread perfect head-high tube after perfect head-high tube, it's easy to think, "Yeah, I could do that." Turns out, most of us probably couldn't.
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?
