Teahupoo Tuesday

Tahiti’s Teahupoo is considered to be the heaviest left-hand barreling wave in the world. Breaking over razor sharp coral and packing a punch of the entire south Pacific, Teahupoo makes heroes every swell all while humbling the mightiest of surfing’s elite. From Laird Hamilton to Raimana Von Bastolear, Chopes has been the scene of so many dramatic days in surfing it’s hard to keep track. Here’s a few of our favorite moments representative of the awesome power of this amazing wave
