Entire Code Red Film Now Available Right Here

Kelly Slater won last year’s historic Billabong Pro Tahiti in clean double overhead waves that produced one of the greatest surf contests in competitive surfing history. The waves were so massive that the contest was actually called off one of the days because the swell was too big, a reason for not running a contest unheard of in the ASP World Tour.

With French Polynesia issuing a 24 hour Code Red advisory preventing watercraft from legally being in the ocean that day, a group of surfers brought out personal watercrafts for Teahupo’o tow sessions in heavy waves measuring over 20 feet that were crashing onto shallow reef. Naturally, some of the world’s greatest surfers came out to play.  Only brief video clips of that day were previously available.  This documentary video features over 15 minutes of amazing Code Red footage capturing the magnitude and essense of this monstrous swell that hit Tahiti.
