Owen's Teahupo'o Blades

Monday, August 07, 2017

 

 

After a solid showing at perfect JBay, Owen's off to one of his favourite waves in the world for the next CT stop - Teahupo'o. Over the last few years he's had perfect 10s, finals, and some of the most memorable performances of all-time, including the AI award for commitment during 2014's huge swell. Quite simply, Tahiti's most famous and dangerous wave takes a very special surfer to rise to the challenge, and Owen is one of the rare few equipped to do just that. Here's what O's packing (he's 6'3" / 76kg): 

FORGET ME NOT - 6'3 1/2" x 19" x 2 3/8" x 29.3L

FORGET ME NOT - 6'4 1/2" x 19" x 2 3/8" x 29.7L

FMN STEP UP - 6'6" x 19" x 2 3/8" x 29.9L

FMN STEP UP - 6'8" x 19" x 2 3/8" x 31.1L

FMN STEP UP - 6'10" x 19" x 2 3/8" x 32L

 

From packing closeouts to charging (and making) some of the best tubes of the day, it was waves like this that made O an easy choice for the AI award in 2014. Photo WSL / Will Hayden-Smith
