Teahupoo Meat Grinders!

I just saw the video "Biggest Teahupoo Ever," (see below) and I'm still in shock. It was filmed August 27, 2011 by Chris Bryan using a "Phantom Camera," whatever that is. Anyway, it features big, gnarly virtually unrideable waves, that of course guys are riding now days.

What is it with these guys? Seriously, this is beyond comprehension. A friend of mine said it was the most "interesting, but boring video" he'd ever seen. In some ways, I agree. This is like watching someone grind meat on a hand-cranked meat grinder!

Bryan did an incredible job shooting and editing this piece of work, but to me--an old school guy--I have to wonder: "Did anybody make any of these waves?" Not in this video. I don't know, I think there's a mentality today that just wants to take it as far as they can until they get killed. Yikes!
