Kauli Seadi: what goes up... | Photo: Motion Windsurf Magazine #4

Kauli Seadi is a fantastic wave windsurfer. When fear strikes, he goes for it. But if you still have doubts, watch him defying gravity and madness in Teahupoo, Tahiti.

Would you take your windsurfing rig to one of the heaviest waves in the world? Probably not. Fortunately, there's a man who can handle power and thick lips. He's doing it for you. No worries.

Brazilian windsurfer Kauli Seadi went on a boat trip to French Polynesia and scored big. It all started in adrenaline-fuelled double overhead surf session, and it ended in mayhem.

"In Tahiti, I scored the most radical and bizarre windsurf of my life. I had a chance to windsurf the wave of Teahupoo with amazing swell and really good wind. There were glassy waves with power and speed. No other wave on the planet could offer this kind of barrels," explains Seadi.

Seadi's honeymoon trip to French Polynesia was fully glorious. The windsurf session has already made the cover of two windsurfing publications - Motion and Windsurf Magazine. But the question remains unanswered: is this real?
