Shea’s detailed write-up

Billabong Pro Teahupoo Pundit Shea Lopez picks his team for the 2014 contest at our favorite mutant wave in Tahiti.

Riding Teahupoo safely requires not only great skill, but tremendous commitment. It takes the highest caliber of surfing to excel out there, and every world champion since Teahupoo’s addition to the Tour has proven themselves fearless when peering over the ledge. With a close ratings race, we should see a number of surfers looking to step up and throw their name in the ring as Teahupoo chargers and world title contenders. This should make for quite a spectacle.
