As you read this, Teahupoo is big and perfect, it has been most of this week and will continue for a couple more weeks (yes, you heard right!). Below we'll be bringing you the latest photos, videos and quotes coming out of Tahiti.
If you’re sick of seeing giant Tahitian barrels and absolutely brutal wipeouts we can understand. But the swell keeps pumping at the End Of The Road and Brian Bielmann is still firing away from the channel so we ain’t stopping until a) the swell fades away b) Brian falls off the boat and into the drink c) There aren’t any more able bodied surfers to ride the waves. If anything, option c seems to be the most likely.

Big wave riders from the world over woke up after catching last minute flights to a massive Teahupoo that got bigger during the day. Koa Rothman picked up one of the bombs of the day. Laird, Raimana, Sancho all picked up some epic waves & it was an insane day of surfing Teahupoo's massive tubes!
