Alvino Tupai’s new clip reminds us all why Teahupoo is so damn scary

select_logoDue to its constant appearance on news highlight reels and hollywood blockbuster films, Teahupoo has become a wave that is seen so often that we are almost completely desensitised to its testicle-shrinking scariness.

But then every now and then a clip comes along to remind you just how ferocious this South Pacific jewel can be.

Enter Imagine – the latest clip from Tahitian nutcase Alvino Tupai.

Clocking in at just under six minutes and also featuring a trip to the South Australian desert, Alvino’s shows us just why Teahupoo is regarded as the scariest wave in the world.
