Motion Picture: Joel Parkinson Cuts Loose At Te Ava Iti

Joel Parkinson cuts loose at Te Ava Iti (Tahitian for “small pass”), a fun, playful wave located in the land of ass-tearing, razor-sharp coral locales. Te Ava Iti is a relaxing reprieve from its terrifying neighbor, Havae Passe, better known to the world as Teahupo‘o. Here, Joel approaches the end section like a bat out of hell and absolutely demolishes it, scaring tropical fish and non-waterproof-camera-gear-laden photographers alike.–JC
