A Tahitian Reef That's Less Deadly Than Fun
Happy Hawaiians enjoy!
Teahupo'o is a freak of nature, as is that massive Tahitian right whose name we won't bare but whose face you surely know.
But the truth is, you can't surf death-defying waves everyday. After an hour of coursing adrenaline, your body is exhausted and its chemistry out of wack. To continue this trend indefinitely would lead to human errors and eventually, well... death.
Which is why it's important that your scary sessions are complemented by those that are merely fun. And we think this right-hand reef, which both grows and shrinks as it snakes down the line, is the perfect intermediary spot – still shallow and powerful enough to keep you alert, but not so terrifying that your heart drops as sets approach.
Watch as Teva, Kamalei, and Jesse drive through Tahiti's succulent chambers, and see if your heart skips a beat.
