April 29, 2003. The Swell From Hell hits Teahupo¡¦o head-on, and Cory Lopez, Malik Joyeux, Bruce Irons, Tamayo Perry, Strider and Raimana are there to tackle it. Strider¡¦s near-death experience, Cory¡¦s outlandish monster and Malik Joyeux¡¦s all-time biggest, absolutely GIMONGOUS, ¡§bigger-than-Laird¡¦s wave¡¨ monster are all caught on film.
WOW is a documentary style short that chronicles one amazing day at Teahupo¡¦o, the madmen who were there to charge and the innocent bystanders who were blown away by the sheer ferocity of the epic barrels pouring over this piece of Tahitian reef. Gnar.
