Maybe you’re like us, and you enjoy wagering hard-earned money on which men and women will make more barrels on some island in the South Pacific. Or, maybe you just enjoy listening to a local’s take on the different Championship Tour venues.  Either way, this video is for you.

Tahurai Henry, longtime Tahitian stalwart and heavyweight charger, breaks down the forecast and his picks for the upcoming Teahupo’o comp. 

Everyone is excited about the blob which is slowly lumbering its way towards the End of The Road. We’re just hoping for a bit of west bowl mayhem, and maybe some GOAT-ish behavior from the senior citizen on tour.

While you won’t be surprised by any of Tahurai’s picks, his insight is extremely valuable, especially if you’re volunteering your latest paycheck on

As a reminder, here’s Mikey’s picks for the upcoming bloodbath, though the odds have changed since he locked them in (gotta be quick!).
