Are You Ready for Teahupoo?
Teahupoo could easily be the 8th wonder of the world. From the beauty of the valley to the cylindrical perfection of the wave, everything about Teahupoo makes you stop and pay attention.
Every year we pack our bags and get prepared for the event with fear and excitement. Because really, life's better at boardshorts...especially in the barrel.
