b
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 a surfboard under 7 feet with a sharply tapered nose, three fins, and built for performance and/or tricks. Countless variations exist with anywhere from 1 to 5 fins and various shapes. Generally ridden by younger, lighter surfers. Often ridden by people who are not ready for them which causes the side effects of crippling their style and fluidity while making bad habits harder to unlearn later. Many shortboarders would be happier on an egg, longboard, fish, or "fun" board but cant get over the need to be cool. Their maneuverability, makes mind blowing things possible but it comes at a price. They are harder to surf well, harder to catch waves on, and break easier but arguably more challenging and rewarding.
