New Heights, Tahiti

Watching too much bodyboarding footage lately but I’m just blown away by how far (and high!) this piece of foam has been taken, at once just a toy for any beachgoing tourist, young and old to frolick in the shorebreak…to the deepest depths, and as if to thumb their noses at the ocean’s awesome power, soaring high above the heaviest waves in the world…
