Between The Heats: Teahupoo Edition

Slater, Florence, Toledo, Walsh, and more stay busy

Before the first horn sounds and the last one calls, the lineup at Teahupoo is open for business to anybody willing to paddle out and try their luck. For guys like Kelly Slater, Anthony Walsh, and John John Florence, paddling out is a no-brainer. They have an acute love for the wave at the End of the Road. For other guys like Garrett Parkes, Filipe Toledo, and Ricardo Christie, paddling out is a necessity. I mean, a future World Title may very well come down to how comfortable they are at the South Pacific slab. This edit captures both ends of the spectrum. Try to see if you can catch the want versus need as seconds tick by.
