The words 'perfect tube' are overused, but in this case everything about this wave is actually perfect!

OK, I'm gonna get verbal on yo asses... Flawless ephemeral hydro-satin framed by paradise unfettered by human projection. Mother nature as siren inspired and inspiring the quest for perfection hitherto unseen, unheard and untouched. Even that don't do it justice. I wanna cryyyyyy!
