Teahupoo is easily the world’s most respected wave at this point. A shallow ledge of reef in Tahiti that trips up deep water swells, sending them folding over themselves in a real, real big hurry. It’s beautiful, it’s ferocious. It’s only surfable for about one percent of the surfers on the planet. For the rest of us, it’s like watching a Formula One race. Morgan Maassen, a filmmaker from California, and the maker of this clip, is sorta smitten with the place.
