Don't you just love when the likes of Teahupoo turn on? Thick-lipped and blasting into shallow water, committed locals will either get the cover up of their life or shish kebabed on reef below. It's been kind of sleepy for the past few years too, up until recently. We're believers of 'too much slow mo ruins a short web edit' but this is cut with just the right amount. You want to see the takeoff, the setup, then the barrel race. Skip to 4mins 40secs for some masterful shooting and enjoy the embracing surf cultures of Hawaiian x Tahiti.
