For the adrenaline junkies, surfers or those who simply revel in beautiful ocean waves, filmmaker Chris Bryan recently released footage from The Biggest Teahupoo Ever (video below) from the namesake break in Tahiti, French Polynesia. Surfer Kelly Slater described the day as “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." Mountainfilm in Telluride may have roots firmly embedded in climbing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate the skill of these surfers.
