The West Australian big wave lunatic doesn’t leave his home state unless there’s a good swell on the maps. Tahiti’s legendary left throws a couple of big things his way on this trip.
Arnaud is the rising star of freediving. Born in Marseille in 1996, Arnaud grew up by the sea. With the ocean as a playground, he naturally discovered freediving with his dad. As a struggling kid at school with dyslexia, he finds in the ocean the peace and confidence in himself. Basically he started “breathing again” thanks to freediving. He can hold his breath for a really, really long time, on the 20th May 2019, he broke a new World Record in constant weight bi-fins with a dive to -108m. Check out the footage as he free surfs under the beautiful Tahitian waves.

So theres a certain ‘little’ wave on the south-west coast of the island of Tahiti, French Polynesia, southern Pacific Ocean. It’s been a tad maHOOSIVE recently, here’s some of the footage. Strap in, and hold on… Teahupoo, aye carumba.
Part 2 of the Tahitian adventure! Stormy weather made it not your average Tahiti trip. But the crew still manages to have a good time and catch some sick waves. Koa gives away six surf boards to the local kids so they can catch some bombs!
