This day at Teahupoo- Aug 27th 2011 during the Billabong Pro waiting period is what many are calling the biggest and gnarliest Teahupoo ever ridden. Chris Bryan was fortunate enough to be there working for Billabong on a day that will go down in the history of big wave surfing. The French Navy labeled this day a double code red prohibiting and threatening to arrest anyone that entered the water.
Kelly Slater described the day by saying "witnessing this was a draining feeling being terrified for other people's lives all day long, it's life or death. Letting go of that rope one time can change your life and not many people will ever experience that in their life."

'Beauty Pockets' is the first surf short from Epokhe.
The Pacific HWY played host. Strange things happen on the road, strange but beautiful. The view from a car window is hypnotic. A quick bolt from the Epokhe HQ in Byron Bay and the team found waves in the South Coast of Australia. The Signing just months prior of Epokhe ambassador Creed McTaggart saw the team in need of some bonding. The Highway, a place where conversation is required. 7 days on the road, a small south swell, Big cities, bars, landscapes, isolation, lunatics and talents…anything that makes you stop and pull the camera out.
