Watch: Jonathan Gubbins // Desert Point Omen
Recently, I watched a video of Clay Marzo and Mason Ho surfing at Desert Point and was tempted to embed it on Swellnet. Two virtuoso tuberiders, both stylish and unique, at one of the world's great waves.
In the end I elected not to run it as the surfing was passable but the waves weren't. The size was underdone for a wave that's often filmed in the six foot range.
Today I was sent this video. Yet another stylish and unique tuberider at Desert Point, and this time the waves provide an appropriate canvas for Johnny Boy Gubbins to practice his single fin-oriented tube style. Front foot up the board and taking the brunt of body weight, back foot barely touching, sometimes only with a toe, knees slightly bent, and right hand aiming to where he wants to go.
