Watch: Teahupoo // Contrasts
With his Red camera slung over his shoulder, Tim captured all the best rides from the recent Code Red swell in Tahiti. Some you may have seen on other blogs, none in such good quality as Tim presents here.
Slow down and give yourself a few moments to enjoy the film.
Jaw dropping. In a world saturated with content, the hat getting blown off at around 11.45 is truly remarkable!
The wide shots, at full speed, are awesome. Matahi Drollett’s tow at 9.14 to start proceedings is a blinder, so deep, so critical.
Omg! To be Matahi Drollet! Lovely to see his expression of joy after completing the ride on a wave that was made in heaven, masterly surfed and filmed! Choice film Tim, thank you.
Good to watch leisurely on a bigger screen. Some beautiful images. The lead up travel shots and anticipation of a chasing and facing a code red swell could have been annoying but for a potentially massive swell sets the scene well.
The quieter back story that slips in where a guy mentions about maybe 200 surfers there to try to get some glory is a sign of the times.
Nate Florence in another video said he caught two waves and then gave up due to the circus in the line up. A long way to go to get two medium sized Chopes waves....
Hopefully for the locals there are some sneaky big days scattered through the year without the hype to get some peace in the lineup.
yeah I watched the other video good to see even the pros get affected by the circus...
I just look at that and think - 'what a zoo'.
Some great waves but... do we have to record every fucking thing we do, before its real.
Probs sounding like an old bugger :))
Lol... cameras on sticks cameras in mouths cameras on helmets no doubt drones buzzing around... Tims narcissism and usual overdrama muzak... yeah nah. Still nice waves tho but the paddle crew must be a bit pissed
totally - although many of those waves you couldn't paddle :) As for Tim, enough said.

Matahi Drollet is on a different plane. Otherworldly.
Yep, Deeper, casual, got the place wired
Looks easy.....As a spectator.
