Lime Juice and The Sea

April 28th, 2010 by John Zanussi

In the last video we posted from Allan Wilson, we saw Fergal Smith in a full suit, gloves and boots charging large cold water slabs in Ireland. This time around they are in the beautiful warm waters of Tahiti surfing Teahupoo. It looks like making gnarly drops with the extra weight of a full winter suit has prepared them well for the drops at Teahupoo; I’m sure Fergal wishes he had that extra 6 millimeters of “skin” when he slammed into the reef. More so, when his buddy Tom Lowe has to rub a few halved limes in the open wounds. The […] More »

Teahupo’o Going OFF Last Week

March 21st, 2010 by John Zanussi

Teahupo’o saw some serious swell this past week and the waves were absolutely ridiculous. I couldn’t even imagine behind towed into something so gnarly. You really have to be just a little crazy to go out and catch waves at Teahupo’o when it’s this big, it is just so damn massive and heavy. More »

The Ultimate Wave Tahiti 3D Movie Featuring Kelly Slater

February 17th, 2010 by John Zanussi

  The first 3D IMAX surf movie made its premiere last week in LA. The Ultimate Wave Tahiti features nine-time world champ, Kelly Slater surfing the best waves Tahiti has to offer. The film is only 45 minutes long but there is some insane footage of Slater surfing along with free dives through schools of tropical fish, and scenic tours of Tahiti’s coral reef and volcanic island formations. Slater and some friends meet up with Tahitian surfer, Raimana Van Bastolaer and experience the exotic culture Tahiti has to offer before heading out to score perfect waves. The 3D version puts you right on the shoulder of Teahupo’o as it spits a salty blast of water right into your face. Watch the trailer here and make sure you go see this movie in theatres. For a complete list of theaters showing the movie and the premiere dates, click here. More »
