Biggest Teahupoo Ever

BIGGEST TEAHUPOO EVER Billabong Pro surf video by Chris Bryan
This is insane. Watch the video below!

“This day at Teahupoo- Aug 27th 2011 during the Billabong Pro waiting period is what many are calling the biggest and gnarliest Teahupoo ever ridden. Chris Bryan was fortunate enough to be there working for Billabong on a day that will go down in the history of big wave surfing. The French Navy labeled this day a double code red prohibiting and threatening to arrest anyone that entered the water.”

All images where shot by Chris Bryan using the Phantom HD Gold camera. To see more of Chris’ work check out his website.

I found some news footage to put it in perspective (wait for the guy to get thrown right out of the water at the end of the clip):

  • SICK VIDEO! thanks for sharing this gem! seriously the weight of the entire ocean looked like it fell in on those surfers.

    • ya i hold my breath every time i see them fall dropping down the face of the wave

      • steven

        same here jeff. I wonder how many seconds they are under these spiraling waves.

  • holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit! so crazy and so beautiful…

  • Carolyn

    Absolutely stunning video, and the background music is lovely too. Anyone know the name of the song per chance?

        THANK YOU :)

      • steven

        m83 is so distinct. good stuff. I’ve only hopped on since the “hurry up, we’re dreaming” bandwagon. He creates an epic soundscape, that’s for sure.

  • Charlie Dolman
  • the surfers are trying their best to penetrate the water as they fall but it looks like they are skipping. way too much speed. 

  • Bob Benson

    The surfers were literally sliding sideways as the front of the wave was moving up as fast as they were coming down the wave. in some cosmic balance between the acceleration of gravity of the surfer and the rip of the water racing up the front of the wave . . . Mind blowing . .
