Barreledsearch for term

Getting yourself into the hollow cylinder created inside a wave when it breaks over a reef, sandbar, or shallow bottom. The goal is to get in and stay in as long as possible, then exit at the last possible moment - the cleaner the exit the better. The bigger the barrel the greater the glory. However long you think you got barreled - cut it in half to get an almost accurate estimate.

Synonyms: tubed, shacked, slotted, pitted, deep

Usually hand made from a foam core (or "blank") with a wooden stringer that is sanded to the desired shape then coated with clear fiberglass/resin. Modern boards have anywhere from one to five fins arranged at the tail end of the board. Fins vary in size, stiffness, and shape and can often be changed to suit the rider or conditions. Boards can also be made from epoxy, carbon fiber, and multi-layered foam. An elastic leash is usually attached to the rear to make retrieving the board easier. While a surfboard can withstand hundreds of pounds of force they are also fragile and break down when left in hot areas (such as cars) and direct sunlight.
