The Gnarliest Teahupoo Wave Ride Ever

We interrupt your regularly scheduled adrenaline rush schedule to bring you this selection of awesomeness because sometimes there are videos that are just too good to wait for a Monday or Friday posting.

At the Billabong Pro event in Teahupoo, on the southwest coast of Tahiti in the French Polynesia, the waves were some of the most gut-wrenching in history.

The French Navy labeled this day a double code red prohibiting and threatening to arrest anyone that entered the water. That couldn’t keep these guys out of the water. Check out the waves here and the crazy footage, thanks to Chris Bryan. Wow. Just wow.
