The Phantom high-speed camera churns out more mind-blowing footage, this time of some of the best surfers in the world going up against the massive waves of Teahupo’o, Tahiti.
I followed along online as Kelly Slater won last week’s Billabong Pro Tahiti and couldn’t believe how heavy the waves looked. This highlight video, shot with a Phantom HD high-speed camera, is the best highlight of the week by far. The super slow motion footage magnifies the size and power of the waves at Teahupo’o — already some of the biggest and gnarliest in the world.
