Standup boards generally aren’t thought of as great barrel-riding tools. That’s because, generally, they’re not. But board technology has come a long way recently and so have paddlers. Here, we see Geoff Breen, Keahi de Aboitiz and Jackson Close charging a big, lumpy, barreling day on South Stradbroke Island in Australia. The boys broke four leashes and took some serious beatings on their quest for barrels. It’s an admission price we’re sure they were glad to pay.
