Tournotes : Tahiti

Praise Tahitian Jesus, Miguel Pupo’s teeth have broken from their oppressive shackles !

The poor guy. I mean, he underwent serious oral surgery just to enable proper breathing, resulting in some of the most misconfigured teeth this side of Alabama. But finally he is free from the tooth-induced trauma, and for that we are grateful.

The rest of this video is interesting, as it details each surfer’s different approach to contest at Teahupo’o. Some strategies included “going switch”, “dieting and mindset”, and “stand up, grab my rail, and go straight to the channel”.

Feel free to take some notes while viewing.
