Behind the scenes Tahiti

At times when documenting trips I find what is going on behind the scenes to be more interesting than the waveriding itself.  On this particular trip that didn't quite apply...the waves we had were by far the scariest things I had ever seen.  The night we flew into Tahiti happened to be mere hours before one of, if not, the heaviest sessions took place at Teahupoo.  While everyone was trying to sleep a couple hours before the sun came up.  Beren Hall and Taylor Steele were up nearly the whole night prepping for the shoot ahead.
