'Code Red' Movie Shows Teahupoo in Super Slow Mo

The opening scene for the documentary Code Red sets the tone. While sitting on a porch in the rain, a surfer checks surfline.com and finds out that the swells headed for Tahiti are huge.

"Listen to this: thursday, 8-to-10 feet; friday, 8-to-12 feet; saturday, gigantic; sunday 8-to-12 feet."

Cue quote on screen of surf announcers: "It's a pretty special swell that I know a lot of big wave chargers are probably going to be coming into town for."

And then crosscut back to the surfer on the porch saying, "It's so big. It's as big as Australia."
