Spanish froth-legend Andy Criere has just overcome a rite of passage for a travelling surfer — riding the behemoth that is Teahupoo.

The two-time Spanish Champion arrived in Tahiti with the hope of scoring the perfect wave, something he has visualised from 10-years-old.

"This trip represents the realisation of a childhood dream, as I still remember my first years of surfing when I watched in magazines the pros surfing in these crystal clear waters and making tubes that once seemed impossible."
