Deadly Perfection: The Terrible Beauty Of Teahupoo

“Teahupoo blue” — also known as hue no. 2748 on the Pantone Matching System colour chart, for anyone currently thinking about redecorating. It’s by a distance the favourite colour of local chargers Lorenzo Avvenenti, Ariihoe Tefaafana, Enrique Ariitu, Kevin & Michel Bourez, Matahi Drollet and Matehau Tetopata. The Bourez boys get two of the best waves, but also two of the worst beatings, Michel’s (3:51) resulting in a broken hand and vertebrae, and causing him to miss the Rio and Fiji Pros.
