Eli Olsen and Friends Ride North Shore’s Sandbar

There’s a sandbar slab that’s currently all the rage on the North Shore. For those who don’t speak surf, a slab is a funky wave that occurs when fast-moving water slams into a reef at Mach-speed. The resulting wave is a violent barrel that makes for a good surfing challenge. Surfer and vlogger Eli Olsen shows us how to ride the beast with the help of friends Kelly Slater and Nathan Florence.
