The Mother of All Teahupoo Sessions

Did you get your own session?

Spikyshots: Unfortunately not, my RRD gear didn’t show up in time so I did the right thing and picked up the camera, it was incredible to see these guys ripping on such perfect waves but I wanted to be there so bad.

Any big wipeouts?

Spikyshots: For sure, Kauli went over the falls on his last wave, he got sucked over really bad. We saw him heading in after that and then didn’t see him again but we heard he twisted his ankle quite bad, possibly even broken. I think anyone in his position would say whatever it was, it was worth it.

What about Kauli’s equipment, did it survive?

Spikyshots: No for sure not, nothing survives the power of this wave. We heard everything was totally destroyed, the wave even had enough power to break the board in two. That kind of shows you how strong it is for those that get sucked over the falls. We are happy to hear that nothing worse happened to Kauli and are looking forwards to the video footage coming online.
