uploaded this clip to vimeo with the world’s best surfers including Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson and Taj Burrow talking through their experiences of surfing Teahupoo and their mindset around surfing one of the heaviest waves on the planet. With all the clips that come out of the spot it’s great to hear the top 34 talk through what you need to be thinking about when you through yourself over the ledge at Teahupoo. The beginning of the video also has a great little history lesson from a local Tahitian on the naming of Teahupoo and  the island’s gory history.

If you ‘ve surfed Teahupoo feel free to share your thoughts below and even better if you can recommend any good accommodation for surfers visiting Teahupoo or Tahiti we would really appreciate it!
