Time and time again we see images of Teahupoo cropping up in the surfing world, yet still it is a rare treat to spot a windsurfer shredding this famous reef break. Well the stars aligned recently and there was one person who wasn’t going to miss out, the former PWA Wave World Champion himself, Kauli Seadi. However, the fact that a camera was out was sheer coincidence. We caught up with the photographer, Mathieu ‘Spikyshots’ Fouliard, for a few words on want just went down. Make sure you don’t miss a page, the images are just insane.
Mathieu, what just happened, out of no where, images of Kauli have exploded on to Facebook, what were you guys doing there?
Spikyshots: Actually it was more of a coincidence, my good friend (the one riding Naish) Charles Vandemeulebroucke has been living there for 2 years now, waiting for these conditions, waiting to score the perfect session, for 2 years… Perhaps it was no surprise that he wasn’t the only one on the water that day. When Kauli showed up he had a small film crew with him who were shooting for some kind of reality TV show.
