How hectic were these waves..?
The French Navy labeled this day a double code red prohibiting and threatening to arrest anyone that entered the water.
But don’t let this take away from the beauty of what was out there, with Kelly Slater describing the day by saying:
“witnessing this was a draining feeling being terrified for other people’s lives all day long, it’s life or death. Letting go of that rope one time can change your life and not many people will ever experience that in their life.”
+800 boytjie points Chris Bryan for shooting mesmerizing footage of this merciless power on a Phantom Gold Camera at Tahiti’s legendary Teahupoo monster swell.
And +200 boytjie points each to the crazy’az surfers looney enough to try and tame these astonishing waves…!
