tubing sections
Explanation:
Raffaella,
Si tratta semplicemente di un calco dell'inglese "tubing sections". Una ricerca con Goggle per tubing sections + surf mi ha dato vari risultati.
Vedi, ad esempio:

Beaches

Fistral Beach, to the west of the town round Towan Head, is the most famous British surfing beach. There are fast hollow waves, particularly at low tide, and good tubing sections when there's a south-easterly wind.

Watergate Bay is a 2 mile-long sandy beach on the east side of Newquay Bay. At low tide it's a good place to learn to surf. A mile south of Newquay, Crantock is a small north-west-facing sheltered beach, where the waves are best at mid to high tide.

tubes


Explanation:
A few choices depending on who is going to read the finished piece.
1. For standard tourist stuff "tube waves"
2. "tubes" for anyone who knows the subject.
3. "green" or "green window" if you are talking to a surfer; this being the view of the outside world from inside the "tube".
so "hang five" next time you are on the beach (that's five toes over the front end of the board)
luck
