The most beautiful waves ever surfed (HQ Video)

70 5

Headphones on/volume up. This is Teahupo’o, a break off the coast of Tahiti in French Polynesia. The waves here literally suck water off the reef below, creating a vortex that puts the back of the wave at sea level. It’s some of the fastest, thickest waves in the world.

    I think one of the most beautiful parts of this is the vision of man attempting to ride the power of mother nature, yet while doing so, we are understanding of its unending awe and power. This invokes more emotion that anything has in a long time. Thank you Chive
