The Ultimate Wave Tahiti Reviews
The surfing's amazing, and most of it takes place in the second half of the movie. One gets to see Raimana van Bastelaer and the 10x World Champion Kelly Slater surfing the dangerous waves of Teahupoo.
There are also: hula girls, some information about the Tahitian isles, their inhabitants, ocean preservation, and surfing. The movie also has some interesting wave science, explaining how waves are born, travel, function in the vicinity of land masses such as islands, and what makes the Teahupoo waves in particular dangerous for surfers. So here we have a cultural and natural documentary with some amazing surfing, laid-back feeling, relaxing atmosphere and music and pictoresque Tahitian vistas. Indeed this DVD is more of a wildlife and travel documentary than a surfing film, but its ok: Definitely a favorite of mine, and I purchased this both on DVD and blu-ray, but I was left wanting more, especially more of the great surfing I saw in this movie.
