This is Teahupo'o, a big wave on the island of Tahiti in the South Pacific, well known among surfers. I spent 4 years living at anchor on my sailboat right in the bay next to this incredible wave.
Never in my life have I witnessed the perfection and power that I did experiencing this phenomenon of earth! As the swell approaches the outer shelf, it draws all the water off reef and forms into this thick lip that doesn't rise up as much as it hucks out right off the ocean floor into a massive slab of brilliant blue water. It drops like a bomb stories below into this perfect formation of liquid beauty. An absolute wonder of the world!! ✨🙏
Known as one of the worlds most perfect slab waves, this wave will the surfing location for the 2024 Paris Olympics, in French Polynesia.
