Tasty waves

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

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.

Bloody hell. I've been swallowed up by surf of 6 - 8 ft, tossed and twisted, driven into the coral... I was bollocked by mother nature. Frightening. I don't even want to fathom riding that surf. That wall just collapses on 'em and takes 'em to another dimension.

I went boogie boarding a few years ago in Westhampton. A tiny wave face-planted me into a pile of rocks and ended up with twenty-eight stitches in my face.

These dudes are men; I am a worm.
