World's Biggest Wave Ever Surfed - 
TEAHUPOO TAHITI          Click Twice

Surfing-Teahupoo's biggest wave ridden so far- Manoa Drollet

Teahupoo (pronounced Cho-poo) is a world-renowned surfing location off the south-east of Tahiti, located in Papeete Island. Known for its heavy, glassy waves, often reaching 7-10ft and higher. The site of the annual Billabong Pro Tahiti surf competition, part of the World Championship Tour (WCT) of the ASP World Tour professional surfing circuit.

Tahitiís Teahupoo is essentially a glorified closeout - a hideous, deadly barrel promising a heap of trouble for even the most capable of surfers. No other surf spot extracts a higher toll than Teahupoo, the heaviest wave in the world.

BIG WAVES TEAHUPOO TAHITI -

 

 

 
BILLABONG ADVENTURE TEAMS RIDERS SHANE DORIAN, LAURIE TOWNER & DYLAN LONGBOTTOM RIDE SOME OF THE BIGGEST WAVES EVER AT THE INFAMOUS TAHITIAN BREAK TEAHUPO'O. LOCAL CHARGER, MANOA DROLLET JOINED THEM FOR THIS JULY 28TH SESSION ON THE BIGGEST SWELL TO HIT IN A YEAR. THE BILLABONG ADVENTURE TEAM AIMS TO FIND AND CHART BREAKS AROUND THE GLOBE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING MONSTER RIDES LIKE THESE.

THE SURF
Teahupoo has seven surf breaks within five miles of each other, all breaking in different swells and winds.  Due to Tahitiís position facing the full force of the South Pacific, waves can be had all year round.  The biggest and most consistent months are March through October, but it is not uncommon to get southerly swells of any size November though February which often has epic glassy conditions.

There are  two Semi Secret spots very close to the lodge which range in difficulty from beginner to expert depending on swell and conditions.
Teahupoo is the next pass up the reef.  It is little known that Teahupoo is not just for experts, and does not typically break with the tremendous power that has made the break famous. At size below 8í faces the wave offers decent surfers and amazing ride with a non-threatening bowl section and rippable shoulder.  It is the most consistent spot around breaking from 2í-20í.

The next left down from Teahupoo is No Pass, a long breaking wave great for lower level surfers through expert.
The very next pass named Small Pass is a short punch right; itís a mechanical wave magnet breaking from head high to double overhead best for intermediate to expert surfers.
For years until the discovery of Teahupoo, the Grade Pass was knows as Tahitiís premier wave.  It is a very long left for intermediate to expert surfers and hold up to very sizeable surf (well more then double overhead).

There is another left just beyond Grande Pass called Miti Rapa which is very hollow typically only breaking with size for the expert level surfer only.

 

How To Get There:
You fly into Papeete's Faaa Airport. It is 4,000 miles or 8 hours from LAX. Driving from Paeete to the End of The Road where Teahupoo is takes about two hours. ( Lower Right of Map )

 

 

BILLABONG PRO TAHITI

Billabong Pro Teahupoo May 4th-14h 2007


Teahupoo, AKA the end of the road.  The term could not be more fitting for the heaviest wave on earth.  It is the end of the road for a lot of people, a spot that brings sleepless nights for the worlds best and is primarily responsible for that feeling of dread which starts at the balls, works itís way up through the stomach and ends in the brain.

The Billabong Pro Teahupoo is the kind of event which stops the surfing world globally.  Enthusiasts from OZ, to the USA, to Europe and the die hard surf locations on each point of the compass, all bought together by a small computer screen, a reliable internet connection and a unified urge to see just how the top 45 face up to the beast of a left which lives in Tahiti. 

Teeth will be lost, skin will be left behind and one hero will emerge.

Donít miss a beat.  The 2007 Billabong Pro Teahupoo.
