Watch: “Perumibia” Jonathan Gubbins is a freaking shack hound

Some clips of Jonathan Gubbins have been circulating over the last few years of which are mostly the long, grinding left variety. The kid loves him some barrel. The title of this clip is an easy play on the legendary wave of South Africa’s Skeleton Coast. And yes, it does look a bit like Namibia….
