Billabong Pro Tahiti 2012

Descripción del evento


Teahupoo is a village on the south-west coast of the island of Tahiti, French Polynesia in the southern Pacific Ocean. A surf break known as Chopes off the shore from the village is known for its heavy, glassy waves, often reaching 2 to 3m (7 to 10ft) and sometimes even higher.
Each year it hosts the fifth stop of the ASP World Tour, the annual Billabong Pro Tahiti. The beach is a reef break, mainly left-breaking but the outer reef also creates right breaks that surfers must be cautious of when paddling out. Teahupoo is also renowned for the consistent number of barrels it delivers. It is a rewarding location and is widely regarded as being on the must-surf list of every enthusiastic surfer. However, only experienced surfers in peak physical condition should attempt Teahupoo, heavy waves combined with a shallow shoreline can result in serious injuries and even death. 
It was here, on August 17th back in 2000, that Laird Hamilton is credited with surfing the heaviest wave ever ridden, as documented by the film Riding Giants.
