Biggest Teahupoo Ever, Shot on the PHANTOM CAMERA. [Original 720p video]


This is a continuation of last post. It is all I have said on a much grander scale. Not in the philosophical sense but in the magnitude of the waves and the sheer force of nature and water.
It’s raw, hazardous and perilous but somehow makes it all the more fascinating and bigger than life. I see art and beauty in every detail of this slow motion video.
I wish you to love it as much (at least!) as I did 🙂
My following video is the whole-story of this one, enjoy it too!

“Code Red” Full Movie – Surfing Goes Huge At Teahupoo Tahiti

Published on Apr 25, 2012
On August 27, 2011, the Billabong Pro Tahiti event on surfing’s World Tour was placed on hold due to a massive swell bearing down on the famed big-wave spot, Teahupoo. With forecasts calling for unprecedented surf, some of the greatest surfers in the world descended on the island to be in the water, despite a “Code Red” called by the Tahitian Coast Guard, which sought to keep everyone on shore. See the historic day through the eyes of two surfers — the young gun Laurie Towner and the veteran Dylan Longbottom — as they catch some of the biggest, most dangerous surf ever recorded, much of it captured with the super slow motion Phantom Camera for never-before-seen imagery.

    • This is so true! That’s how I feel too, we have absolutely no idea the enormous power and energy we have there and only a fraction of it is revealed under certain circumstances.
      I am sometimes at total loss of words when I try to describe the awe I experience when I’m privileged enough to witness one of its sides.
      Thanks for sharing!
