Yesterday, I posted a clip of surfer Nicollo Porcella being subjected to a savage wipeout at Teahupo'o, Tahiti, a notoriously heavy wave that breaks over a shallow reef. He was there because the recent spate of waves have been truly monstrous. Nicknamed, 'Code Orange', the swell is currently claiming the bodies of several surfers (in a bones and blood type way, not actual death), however, a few sturdy bros have managed to conquer the giant walls of water.
Check out this great edit from recent sessions:
Big shout out to this bodyboarding for daring to take his foam slab into the belly of this beast. Here he is just before being eaten:
