Surf The World’s Scariest Wave In Super Slow Motion
Footage like this scares the bejesus out of me but also makes me wish I knew how to surf. Tahiti is home of Teahupoo, the world’s most dangerous naturally occurring wave. If you’ve watched the documentary Riding Giants then you’ve seen how monsterous these waves can become. I’m not sure that Teahupoo is actually larger than Peahi or Mavericks but it must be called the most dangerous wave for a reason. This video was shot with the Phantom in all it’s slo-mo glory. Check out the second video below to see more footage in real time as 32 of the world’s top surfers try to wrangle the beast.
