Small Teahupo'o Looks About Like Heaven
When death is unlikely and tubes are all but guaranteed.
Most pros travel to Tahiti when the charts mirror a fancy woman's eyeldids.
Black and purple, with hints of orange, yellow and red.
But Adrien Toyen is no fan of smokey eyes or death pits. He prefers his tubes playful and in the six-foot range – hence the above video at some of the most enticing Teahupo'o we've seen.
And doesn't the reef look user-friendly at this size, to the point that even you, me, or Dupree could wrangle a tube and find ourselves grinning in the channel?
We'll be keeping our eyes on the charts for the next set of Gentle Greens heading to Tahiti.
