It's a clip that keeps giving and two good tracks as well. My only complaint is it's in Vimeo format, which for me stops, starts, stops etc as it loads slowly ( even with the NBN ), YouTube works so much better. At any rate because of this I watched a 2nd time to get a continuous clip and enjoy the music and footage, good Sunday arvo time wasting.

Sensational. Ah, that full blue sky and northern sun, winter perfection. Great footage Ry & great music too.

A refreshed Barnaby Joyce clocking up some decent tube time on a recent West Australian sojourn!

Great video - I've always liked how relaxed he seems to be in tubes that look anything but relaxing.

Fun fact: Ry was the first pro surfer to have ever dropped in on me. Fond memories.

Just a little bit of Echoes from Crystal Voyger in the colours / camera angle.

Incredible footage with great music to match. Cant believe I just watched that 3 times in a row, can’t remember the last time I did that with any other surf vid that has been posted!

Fantastic clip a real contender for clip of the year already!
The only * is the rides are all jetski assisted. I have no problem with that as such and under the circumstances as no one's really around, the waves are long and big, probably lots of water moving and sweep but without the ski there is no doubt that dude
a. Catches far fewer waves and even fewer from the sweet spot.
b. Comes out of fewer of the tubes entered.
So without the ski involved i'd say vid of the year winner 2019 just for how epic the sessions are from one dude (without seeing the other 11.5 months :-) Still amazballs

Google Chrome has worked better, still can't get through glitch free, but I've watched it 4 times now and am blown away with the footage, I couldn't get through Filipe's vid and bailed before it ended.

Another look at me expose from Craike who seems to do little other than surf and post to SM. Did nothing for me.

My kids have been mesmerised by this film.. both have asked me a couple of times "to watch that video with the colourful tunnels".

Barrels, kids. Barrels. Or tubes. But never tunnels.

barrels, bazzas, tubes, tubs, tunnels, funnels, pits, pipes, caverns
No need to discriminate, I'm happy to get any of em.

4 mins of Toledo in Hawaii - snore fest! Couldn't even watch the whole thing.
8 mins of Craikey - mind blown! Don't think I blinked!
Pining for a dose of desert!

From my workspace chair, had me ducking to squeeze under the lip and escape. Best 10 min today!

If it was easy eveyone would do it.

Incredible clip and totally had me ducking and trying to weave those stupidly deep caverns.

Best thing is he seems to have developed a full on beer belly yet still can weave a tube
