Biggest Teahupoo Ever

30 Jan

I’ve posted some of the luscious Phantom ocean footage of Chris Bryan before – and here’s his latest. It was 27 August 2011 during the Billabong Pro at Teahupoo. 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 the day a double code red – prohibiting and threatening to arrest anyone that entered the water. Kelly Slater described 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.” All images where shot by Chris Bryan using the Phantom HD Gold camera. Phenomenal. And the track, in case you’re wondering, is “Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun” by M83.
