Watch: Jonathon Gubbins // Well Barrelled Human

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

You remember Jono, yeah? Peruvian bloke, fan of the forward-weighted tube stance, bad aversion to tail pads - not that he doesn't like them, just doesn't stand on them.

In this five minute clip, Jon demonstrates the successful application of the technique, board largely running straight but the speed management comes from weighting and unweighting the rocker line.

So composed in that position he just sat there didn't make a show just let the wave do the talking around him I ended being entranced

No back foot wear on his tail pads, and yes he's keeping in the shade as much as possible.

Last wave at pipe (or OTW) was a perfect final touch

Go deeper Taylor, go deeper!
