FLASH BACK FRIDAY #FBF X TEAHUPOO

IN HONOR OF FLASH BACK FRIDAY AND THE BILLABONG TAHITI PRO HAPPENING RIGHT NOW, WE’D LIKE TO SHARE THIS AMAZING VIDEO FILMED BY CHRIS BRYAN. CHRIS CREATED THIS BEAUTIFULLY DRAMATIC VIDEO OF WHAT PEOPLE CALL THE THE BIGGEST TEAHUPOO EVER RIDDEN.
IT WAS FILMED WITH A PHANTOM CAMERA, WHICH ALLOWED HIM TO CREATE AN INCREDIBLE SLOW MOTION EFFECT.

WE WERE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO BE IN TAHITI IN 2011 WHILE THIS SWELL HIT. IT WAS DEFINITELY A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME EXPERIENCE AND CRAZY TO SEE THE POWER AND DANGER OF THIS WAVE. HEARING THE WEIGHT OF THE WATER HIT THE REEF SOUNDED LIKE BOMBS GOING OFF EVERY TIME. TRULY AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE.

IT’S EASY TO FORGET HOW MAGICAL AND POWERFUL THE OCEAN CAN BE. WATCH THIS VIDEO AND ME MESMERIZED AT THE BEAUTY AND MONSTROSITY OF TEAHUPOO, TAHITI, FRENCH POLYNESIA.

WE’RE ALL CHEERING FOR KELLY! WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR THIS YEAR?

ENJOY X

Ph Jordan Makarof

I’ll better start introducing my self, well(if you don’t already know) I’m Evangelie, a Greek born Pisces, which automatically means two things for me: One is that I love the sea ( it’s in my genes) and two…the sea loves me back(it’s written in my stars). So I couldn’t help but to choose  my favorite sport , swimming, a sport that apart from a healthy body gives me a piece of mind, in order to celebrate Net-A-Porter ‘s newest family member Net-A-Sporter. A whole new era dedicated to the strongest girls who need to sport in style. Well, we all do need an excuse to start working out  and….we’ve just found it. Swimwear, trainers, dance clothes, running pants, made to not only perform but also to stun.
