Tahiti ft. Camille Juban and Antoine Martin

on 20. July, 2014 – 01:47 / 9 Comments

In the middle of May, after the photoshoots were done on Maui, Camille Juban, Antoine “Titun” Martin and Kevin Pritchard travelled from Maui to Tahiti . The goal was to windsurf at the dangerous wave of Teahupoo, a fast hollow wave and indeed one of the most challenging ones. This time Kevin was behind the camera and created an amazing clip. This video defenitely shows how radical windsurfing can look on a surfing spot like Teahupoo. 

 

“Tahiti gets your heart pumping. I had been to Tahiti 4 times before. Sailed all over the island including Teahupoo. The island is amazing, the people show what the word Aloha should mean, but the water, being in this magical water is what sucks you in to this magical place. Windsurfing at Teahupoo is something you can never understand. Watching these kids charge it without any fear inspires me like never before. Filming Camille drop in to a barreling mast high Teahupoo wave, set up and hit the lip over this wave is indescribable. His speed, timing, and commitment is unbelievable.

As I sat on the boat watching, filming, trying to grasp what was going on, the fear in me boiled as I waited for my turn. While we didn’t have anyone to film when I went out, it was ok. It quickly made me realize how I wanted to show the images of Titun and Camille charging this place. Suddenly I wanted to swim in and capture more of the moment, more of the feeling, try to get the audience to feel and see the power of this place. 

The first reason I ever picked up a video camera was to try and show the world what windsurfing was from the inside. To capture it like a windsurfer sees it. I hope this video makes you feel the passion of three guys traveling to one of the most epic windsurfing places on earth, shredding waves, taking turns, having fun, and being blessed with one of the most memorable windsurfing days of their career.” Kevin Pritchard

 

At the Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival we have met with Camille Juban and Antoine Martin for a statement about the wave and their experiences at Teahupoo:
