Teahupo'o Friday morning
The second swell in a week hit Teahupoo Friday morning meaning the southern hemi Winter season is well underway. Today's swell was a long range event having formed under the Tasman Sea earlier this week. The distance between source and destination made for an incredibly inconsistent session. As photographer Ed Sloane said, "It was so, so slow. I’m talking one set an hour."
Speaking of old Ed, his morning wasn't without drama. First he lost a bodyboard to a wide set, then he very nearly lost a foot when he was run over by a boat - whose driver was steering and shooting at the same time!
