Is it just us, or are these 1999 Teahupo’o wipeouts the heaviest you’ve ever seen?

There is no doubt that wiping out at Teahupo’o is the kind of thing that nightmares are made of. Just ask CJ Hobgood. Yes, there have been a few cringeworthy tumbles over the last 2 days of competition, but when we look back to 1999, the first year that Teahupo’o was included on the world tour, it appears that the tour surfers have come leaps and bounds in taming the mutant reef break.
