Teahupo'o ( pronounced T'Choo-Poo ) , Tahiti.
Brilliant. Thanks for posting. Hence the expresion, Blood and Sand.
Those waves looked like monsters rising from the deep, very impressive.
Going up it in a dinghy would be fun.
Now on my list of Lottery Win - Places to go
A contender for the largest wave ever ridden.
A huge swell hit Portugal the other day , and coupled with the bathymetry of the area around Nazare , someone is laying claim to riding a 90 footer.

Surfing News - Nazare Up To 11
Reminds me that I forgot to put on my Old Spice aftershave this morning
Nazere is where I go for some sea and sand when I'm over,hard to imagine waves that big there, brave stuff!
OK then soooooo, at the risk of looking a fool 'though let face it, thats never stopped a post before', at 2:45 in the left hand part of the wave is it just me or is that a shark inside?
Probably just a clump of seaweed sucked off the reef by the wave.
Sharks are hardcore , but not that hardcore !
Sharks don't like their surfers Puréed
And a contender for 'wipeout of the year' ..
Gotta hurt ...

Well , i follow a lot of surfing , and used to do an awful lot of it before i grew up and got a mortgage and kids and Teahupoo is the heaviest without a doubt , no contest.
There is a difference between heaviest and largest .... Teahupoo is the thickest wave by far .... sure there are larger , Jaws , Outer Log Cabins , The Cortez Bank ( 100+ miles offshore , its where they reckon the first 100ft wave will be ridden ) , Mavericks etc etc .... the lip on Lairds video is nothing like the double code red day .
it is a great wave a if you look at the clip you showed you can see it suck the reef nearly dry in front as she forms
