Toying With Teahupoo

An unreal stop-motion super session using Playmobil toys

| posted on May 15, 2014

Just when you thought the reality-defying waves of Tahiti’s famed reef couldn’t be anymore unreal, a stop motion Teahupoo video using Playmobil toys comes out. Karim Rejeb, who also made the equally awesome Perfect Holiday video, recreated a super session at the end of the road in his backyard. Between the foam balls (quite literal), the lone stand-up paddler (1:04), the wipeouts, the claims, and, of course, the POV footage (1:48), the attention to detail is impeccable. There’s one thing we are still trying to figure out though: Which wave is the Nathan Fletcher homage?
