Tube riding


Tube riding

Tube riding is described as riding inside of the tube of a breaking wave.

There are many ways to tube ride. The most natural and primitive way is by body surfing. Body surfers ride the waves on their stomachs and can easily access the tube. Tube riding can also be accomplished on a boogie board, surfboard, and any other wave riding mechanism one can come up with. Many surfers spend years and even lifetimes surfing without ever really getting “tubed” (the term used for getting inside the barrel of the wave).
