Code Red: The Full Movie

I feel very fortunate to have been in the channel when this “day of all days” went down. There was a feeling of electricity and fear in the air. More fear than electricity really. What really amazed me was how powerful the waves were. At times I thought the reef was going to crack in half due to the detonating sets. Miraculously, nobody died although there were a few serious injuries sustained by Keala Kennelly and Maya Gabiera—two of the most bad ass chicks ever. Here’s  15-minutes of fury from the most incredible day of surfing I’ve ever witnessed. Sit back and enjoy.—Justin Coté

Check out my Code Red video below, it’s pretty raw and shot with a point and shoot but you get the feeling what it was like to be in the channel that day…

“Code Red” Saturday, August 27th in Tahiti.
