Watch: Land of Sand | Jonathan Gubbins

Ben Matson
Swellnet Dispatch

The large north-west swell that graced the Hawaiian Islands a few weeks back eventually made landfall in South America, lighting up the Peruvian land of sand with solid gold. Here's an enticing clip from Justis St John, featuring Jonathan Gubbins and tunes by Drab Majesty.

Wow, you could spot him a mile away: skinny legs and one foot on the nose. Very characteristic style.

All the boats 0:45 - is that the surf charters delivering 400 people to the lineup, or the local fishing fleet?

Great barrel riding btw

Fishing boats. But if you’re not a local you could surf there for a year and not get a wave like that.

Semi-fast long open face is perfect for lazy inverted ceiling drift > (Long hang time).
Throw in a Triple Helix to reinvent yourself, anything & more on this bounty.

Crowded out by the town,boats,boards,drones and the wave still shines as the Star.
tbb doesn't know of surfers, but anything that keeps Goofs loopy has gotta be good.

Crew are chalking this up as another top shelf Captain's pick...Thanx for sharing Ben!

You're right TB, nice barrel riding but the wave is the star.

Extra point for warm water too.
