Jonathan Gubbins has his spots in the world that he travels to yearly and checks off his list. Teahupoo in Tahiti is one of them, and the Peruvian has been known as a stand out there whenever he stops on by. Here’s his most recent trip to French Polynesia where he linked up with filmmaker Justis St John that resulted in a few minutes of magic.
“Over the last couple years, I’ve been focused on chasing swells that focus on some of the best barrels in the world. Tahiti, Africa and Indonesia are on top of that list and once I saw this storm, I had a feeling this might be the one. I’ve been putting a lot of effort in with my equipment and surfing lately, and jumping on a last second flight to catch this swell, I was pumped to make the most of it.” – Jonathan Gubbins
