A groovy Teahupoo edit starring the ultra-smooth Brazilian rookie

Between all the demands in logistics during a WSL event (the traveling, the heats, the never-ending interviews recycling the same questions again and again), moments of free surf bliss can feel rare for surfers. Also rare is the chance for fans to watch these sessions as they are intended, which are as acts of restoration as much as they are for training or promotion.

Wiggolly Dantas’s newest edit was filmed during his off time at the Billabong Pro in Tahiti this year, and his cool, collected effort in chasing these Teahupoo tubes refills our tanks just as it did, we hope, his own.
