And yeah, a lot of Super Mario World seems half-baked, as if they made twice as many levels as they had ideas for, maybe to cram in more secrets or to have more ghost houses or fortresses. Many are pretty uninspired. I do like how each Koopaling fight is different from Mario 3's stomp-three-times. Donut Secret 2 is awesome! Some of those are just fun, as if they had been made in Mario Maker or something.
In my playthrough he's just beaten Chocolate Island and the video has about an hour left. Hasn't gone to Star Road or the super-secret area with the surfer talk. IIRC there was one even harder than Tubular.
Learned recently that "tubular" refers to a kind of wave that's good for surfing. I had wondered where that had come from.
