Last weekend Teahupoo was hit with a mammoth swell, and it just happened to occur when the world’s top 32 competitive surfers were there for a contest. This other footage is from August 27, when it was arguably bigger than anyone has ever surfed it.
The contest was put on hold and a crew of madmen used jet-skis to whip each other into some unfathomably massive barrels. There was a ton of carnage, but thankfully no, deaths. Unbelievable. [Billabong]
