Hang Ten

The first thing that caught my eye here was the waves. This is an incredible view of Mother Nature's sheer power. After I stopped going, wow, the next thing I noticed was the cinematography. It's another wow when I think about how you get yourself in position to film something like this. The third thing that caught my eye was the actual surfing. Yeah, I know, but I think this is more a video about the waves than about the surfing.

Another little factoid that made this video interesting to me, it was shot at Teahupoo. That's Tahiti. I have this heroine who's half Tahitian and her father and mother were headed to French Polynesia. Her father's main interest in going was catching the surfing competition guessed it...Teahupoo.
