Surfing Magazine has released this spellbinding drone footage of surfers charging the infamous Teahupoâ€™o wave break in Tahiti. The footage provides a new beautiful perspective of this powerful surf spot.
The name ‘Teahupo’o’ loosely translates to English as â€œto sever the headâ€ and is regarded as one of the most challenging surf breaks in the world. The wipeout 3:17 minutes into the video helps explain why. The drone piloting at the 3:30 mark, when the camera films two waves in a single sequence, is incredible. And to top it all off I’m pretty sure the surfer at 3:53 is lit on fire!
The moody music is a song by Brigitte Fontaine called “Le Goudron”. Do the video justice and watch it at full screen with volume up.
