Albee Layer, Kalani David And Co. Pop Their Tahitian Cherry
Speaking of, have you seen the forecast down there?
Going to Teahupo’o for the first time must be a strange experience, like having sex with a porn star whom you’ve admired for years.
You know her curves intimately, you understand her movements, but there’s still this level of uncertainty.
Will you be strong enough, skilled enough even, to match her power and beauty? Or will she leave you balled up and whimpering in the corner?
Of course there’s only one way to find out, which is why Albee Layer, Kalani David, and the rest of the Dakine team booked flights to French Polynesia last year, testing their resolve at the world’s second most well-known break.
Taking the waves and competitive local contingent into consideration, we’ll give their efforts a 7/10. Nothing to beat your chest over, but also nothing to be ashamed of. They did the deed and had a few moments they’ll never forget.
And if you’ve ever had fantasies of standing in a South Pacific pit, check out the Chopes forecast for the next couple weeks.
Flights are $1,000 (USD) RT from both LAX and Sydney, May 15-29.
