Taming the Beast

It’s difficult to imagine what it must feel like to surf at Teahupoo, Tahiti, arguably the world’s heaviest wave. Most of us would rather think of doing something else but for those brave enough, Teahupoo can either offer the ride of your life or end your life at the crack of its whip. The choice is yours, be good or be dead.

The Billabong Pro Tahiti has experienced some of the heaviest and gnarliest swell in the contest’s history. The raw determination and guts of the surfers who ride these waves is commendable to say the least and goes to show that people are capable of alot more than we care to realise. Enough said, words cannot grasp the intensity of Teahupoo in its entirety but watch this video and decide for yourself or visit www.billabongpro.com for more. If this doesn’t satisfy you, nothing will.
