Two and a Half Magnificent Minutes from Teahupoo

By on

This is far from the biggest, meanest Teahupoo you've ever seen. And far from the most perfect, spiralling tubes you've ever witnessed over the reef at The End of the Road. Hell, the wave count isn't even close to high for nearly three minutes of clip.

So why am I posting? Because Visceral captures the diamond of French Polynesia from every angle and perspective possible—the thrills, spills and the moments in between in vivid blues and greens with a soundtrack to suit the spectacle. And does a better view exist through the exit of a barrel? We don't think so.
