In July 2015 a massive swell hit Teahupoo, Tahiti in French Polynesia. This swell created massive 30-foot waves, surfing by Raimana, Matahi Drollet, Niccolo Porcella, Matehau Tetopata, Oliver Kurtz, Russell Bierke and more.
This aerial video was filmed with a DJI Inspire and Phantom 3.
Teahupoo is one of the most powerful and deadly waves on the planet, and breaks over a shallow reef, creating a below sea level effect. “Teahupoo” loosely translates to “place of skulls”. Shot in 4K, hopefully Vimeo will include 4K options in the future.
