Video: Red Bull Teahupo’o July 2015

Action Life, Sport, Water 12 19

Tahiti’s Teahupo’o has been more perfect. It’s also been bigger. But Tahiti’s most feared wave has never been so huge and picture perfect at the same time.

For some, this would be a bad thing. Jamie O’Brien, the wildman who surfed Teahupo’o while lit on fire, called many of the waves 20-foot closeouts. But when it comes to cavernous walls turning into waves so massive they look like they belong in a cartoon, this was as good as it gets.

Move over 2011’s Code Red, this is Code Orange. It’s the slightly slimmer, slightly more attractive version of the average surfer’s nightmare wave.



If a wave of consequence breaks in the world, you can guarantee Tim Bonython will be there to capture the vision, and Filmers@Large’s most prolific contributor has gone above and beyond to deliver the goods here.

Grab a lifejacket, some protective equipment and strap yourself in. This is the heaviest three minutes of footage you’ll watch this year.
