This Way in - 2019 Tahiti Pro Teahupo’o

Aug 222019

Shakespeare taught us that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Just like no matter how you pronounce the wave at The End Of The Road in Tahiti — “Tcho-poo”, “Tcho-poh-oh” or “Tay-a-ho-poh-oh” — the surf breaks just as hard. That’s right folks, we’re back in French Polynesia to witness the best in the world take on Teahupo’o, one of the most powerful, pristine and entertaining waves on earth. And with the world title race heating up like South Pacific waters, it’s a show you won’t want to miss. 

The 2019 Tahiti Pro Teahupo’o runs from August 21 to September 1.

Monster Threats:

Filipe ToledoHe’s less than 600 points behind first place. Look for Filipe to fly home with the Yellow Jersey. 

Conner Coffin: He’s so skilled that he stalls in the barrel with his boardshorts (pay attention to how often they end up at the top of his thigh)!

Griffin Colapinto: With Tahitian legend Poto in his corner and a few heavy sessions already under his belt, Griff looks posed for a big result. 

Owen Wright: The big goofyfoot meets a big left. Can’t you just see the spit blowing through his hair, now? 

Yago Dora: Fresh off his US Open win, you can bet his momentum won’t be left in Huntington Beach. 

Seth Moniz: Teahupo’o is cousins with Pipeline and Seth looooves Pipeline (just check his last edit). Go Seth, go!


 

Three Questions:

How’s the forecast? Slow to start, with potential for some big surf in the back half of the waiting period.

OK, but for real — how do you pronounce Teahupo’o? The locals say it like “Tay-a-ho-poh-oh”, but most foreign tongues go with “Tcho-poo.” Choose your own adventure.

How are the Monster ponies doing in the title race? Filipe Toledo is currently in second behind Kolohe Andino. (By thiiiiiiis much.) Tahiti will be massive for Filipe’s campaign.
