Tahiti’s Teahupo’o has been a destination for thrill-seeking bodyboarders and surfers for decades. The break has been referred to as many things, including “the glorified closeout,” “the heaviest wave in the world,” and sometimes, “too big.” Windsurfers and kitesurfers have also conquered the so-called “place of skulls” and in 2009, Laird Hamilton standup paddlesurfed the break. Now, other standup paddlesurfers are joining the ranks as they paddle out for a taste of Teahupo’o’s beastly waves.
