Teahupo'o Is Still The Paddle Wave Against Which All Others Are Compared

Koa Rothy and friends follow a terrifying life path. 

Their livelihoods center around last-minute flights to far-flung locations which, they hope, will offer waves capable of taking their lives without so much as a warning. The strangest part is that they've come to enjoy this lethal pursuit and even require it to remain mentally stable. 

This is perhaps the most potent form of Stockholm syndrome we've seen, with Koa and crew's sponsors (captors) making them feel grateful for the opportunity to risk their scalps while toting brand-covered suits and surfboards. 

Just kidding! These psychos would be thrill-seeking with or without the motivation of sponsors. But seriously, how heavy is that Teahupo'o drop?
