Last Saturday, Teahupoo awoke and delivered one of the best sessions we've seen at the End of the Road in the past few years. Then, on the Saturday just gone, those tropical waters rumbled again when another solid SW pulse rifled into Tahiti, capping out another tube soaked afternoon.

The two-pronged strike was mostly a locals only affair, and lensman Tim McKenna was on hand to capture all you see throughout. The highlight of this swell blitz capped out at the 7.5ft@17secs mark, with a moderate offshore breeze -- and perhaps the best news? There's more on the way. See HERE.

Now, this is the kind of system that'll get Chopes ringing.
