Tubing on a paipo

Yesterday I had a fun session, small waves, low tide, but plenty of little peaks with hollow peeling waves, not too crowded.
For the first time I was able to get some "micro tubes"...and most important I was able to exit properly a few times !
My son who saw me "tubing" while he was paddling out was stocked :D
I think it worked because my board is relatively long (47') and hollow (16'), so it fits into micro barrels and yet it is fast enough to exit.
Plus I start to get the thing to position myself in the pocket of the wave and then "brake" by dragging the inside leg a little more until I'm covered up.
Very fun session.

What about you, any tube experience to share ?
