There are some waves around the world where a surfer's ability to stall and park themselves in the tube is a virtue. In the case of Shipstern, it's best to not hide behind the curtain for too long. Give all the stairsteps and deformities in the wave's face and heaving lip, things can go wrong in the blink of an eye. Get in, enjoy the view, and get out.
