Have you ever listened to a professional surfer talk about his very first experience at Teahupoo?
Teahupoo is not only a wave, it is a myth. Every single surfer in the world wishes to be able to drop into this beast, but being a good surfer is not always enough.
Sharing those moments with Ian just makes us realize how intense it is to paddle out there. You just have to look at Ian’s face to feel the adrenaline going through his body. Ian went to Tahiti not only to surf Teahupoo but as he mentions, “to become a better surfer.” Everyday — watching, adjusting, being calm and precise… Ian takes us with him on this journey.
And you, what is your dream wave?
