    From the link:
    This day at Teahupoo- Aug 27th 2011 during the Billabong Pro waiting period is what many are calling the biggest and gnarliest Teahupoo ever ridden. Chris Bryan was fortunate enough to be there working for Billabong on a day that will go down in the history of big wave surfing. The French Navy labeled this day a double code red prohibiting and threatening to arrest anyone that entered the water.
    Kelly Slater described the day by saying "witnessing this was a draining feeling being terrified for other people's lives all day long, it's life or death. Letting go of that rope one time can change your life and not many people will ever experience that in their life."
    All images where shot by Chris Bryan using the Phantom HD Gold camera. To see more of Chris' work check out his website. WWW.CHRISBRYANFILMS.COM

    Awesome, magnificent, terrifying. Kudos to Chris Bryan. But is it sacreligious to say that I thought it was too slow? At this speed it's beautiful as an abstraction, but I think the wave and the perilous situation becomes secondary to the capabilities of the technology. Ouch.

    WOW. That giant wall of water looks so powerful, my good god. I can only imagine the sound of being in the tube of that thing.

    Imagine if he shot that with the Epic at 5k 96fps- not so much slow motion, true, but imagine the photos he would have- cover story material!
