With the Billabong Tahiti Pro only 10 days out, here’s a short film that will get you psyched for the drama and excitement that the island’s famous wave Teahupoo can deliver. In this piece Australian chargers Laurie Towner and Wade Goodall venture to the end of the road for a big paddle and tow in swell. Towner is a veteran of these death-defying sessions, but it was Goodall’s first time strapping in and holding on for dear life at Teahupoo. Goodall was set to compete in the upcoming trials event for the Tahiti Pro, but unfortunately he broke his femur while surfing a slab wave aptly named “Spooky Point” in Australia last week. Two years ago he broke his other leg at the spot right across the bay from Spooky. Let’s hope he gives up that unlucky zone for good now and heals up quickly, because he’s an amazing surfer in any kind of wave.
