Imperial Motion Crew Gets Tubed in Africa

This video offers behind-the-scenes insight into surfing the best wave in the world. You know the one… that left… in Africa.

The Imperial Motion boys, consisting of Benji Brand and Alex and Koa Smith, share the stoke that can only be felt after attaining a 15-second tube-ride. Sometimes the barrels are so long that you have to sit down and take a break, like Alex does above.

It’s hard to put yourself in their shoes, because chances are you’ve never seen a wave anywhere near as good as that in real life. It’ll make you a little sad and a lotta jealous but hey, at least you know it’s out there. Just squint really hard and try to imagine you’re the one in the barrel.
