The Brothers Smith Share A Two-Man Cabana
“Our best double-tube to date!” – Koa Smith
As brothers tend to do, Koa and Alex Smith share many things.
Just off the top of our head: genetics, clean-eating habits, a roadside cafe, surfing prowess, a vlog, and one would expect a female lover from time to time.
Recently, the Smiths went beyond the brotherly call of duty and shared an idyllic, backlit tube on the Indonesian island of Sumbawa. The wave they were surfing is widely regarded as one of Indo’s finest, the reasons for which are made clear in the video above.
The Smiths’ double-barrel—which was technically a double-double-barrel, making it more of a quadruple barrel than anything—was enticing to say the least. The fact that the wave was only three-foot makes it all the more impressive.
Koa claims that this was his and Alex’s “best party wave to date,” which cleverly omits the fact that Koa’s actual best party wave was an accidental affair with a complete stranger, Brazil’s Jeronimo Vargas. Shall we reminisce?
Frankly, this double-team Backdoor effort will be difficult for the Smiths to beat. Do you think that makes Alex jealous?
