Brad Domke rides Teahupoo on a skimboard
- 07 September 2015 | Skimboarding
Skimboarding master Brad Domke has ridden an insane wave at Teahupoo, in Tahiti.
He is not the first skimboarder to tackle the infamous Tahitian reef break. A few years ago, Bill "Beaker" Bryan got towed into a few Teahupoo bombs.
However, it seems like Brad Domke has taken the skimboarding game one step forward. The wave rider from Wabasso, Florida, completed the triple crown of big waves. After claiming Puerto Escondido and The Right, Domke confirms his spot in the elite stage with a dream run at Teahupoo.
The regular-footer got barreled on his skimboard leaf; no fins attached, just pure gliding expertise. As a result, Brad Domke earned himself an entry in the "Ride of the Year" circus by World Surf League.
Backside, no grab. Too good to be true. When will the International Surfing Association (ISA) help boost the sport of skimboarding with a proper world-class competition?
