Watch: Jonathan Gubbins Is A Well-Barreled Human
An accolade of which many dream, and few achieve.
In surfing what do you strive for?
Is it the safety of a solid cutty and a connecting floater? Finally stomping that first air-revo (or hucking them hopelessly wishing that someone on the beach might see and think, yeah, (s)he probably lands those every once in a while? Do you just want to stand and up and shimmy down the line with a knocked knee, self-conscious of a style that feels right? Do you set a line and hope for the best? Or do you do the tube?
When Jonathan Gubbins enters the water, he has an agenda.
For the 39-year-old Peruvian there is one goal and one goal only: the tube.
In Gubbins' new edit, "Well Barreled Human," he travels to some of the biggest lefthand barrels around the world, where he really only has one option.
His favorite option.
