This one is one of the most beautifully shot videos of Teahupoo I’ve seen yet. Here’s the story:
“This day at Teahupoo- Aug 27th 2011 during the Billabong Pro waiting period is what many are calling the biggest and gnarliest Teahupoo ever ridden. Chris Bryan was fortunate enough to be there working for Billabong on a day that will go down in the history of big wave surfing. The French Navy labeled this day a double code red prohibiting and threatening to arrest anyone that entered the water.”
Boooooom has also pointed out some news footage of the event, which you need to watch in order to see the actual speed of the waves when they’re not shown in slow motion.
