Inside The Monster

by on Tuesday 27th August, 2013   37517 Visits   Comments

Dramatic title aside, Inside The Monster, is well worth a 25 minutes of your time.

Particularly interesting is the insight from Teahupoo locals and regulars highlighting just how this wave has reached its carrying capacity. There is no more space for surfers, or for spectators, and the potential consequences of a boat being caught on a big day could be multiple fatalities.

This spot being choked-out raises an interesting question of policing. Who has the willingness or right to regulate this lineup and how can they go about enforcing those rules? It’s a question surfers struggle with across the globe as spots have become congested. Does anyone have more right to surf a spot than any other surfer? Rules are only as effective as their ability to be enforced, and who then polices these rule-makers?
