The Tahiti Pro is the tenth stop on the 2023 Championship Tour Season and the last stop before the Rip Curl WSL Finals. If it’s a slice of paradise you’re after, few places compare to Tahiti. An event unique unto itself, the Tahiti Pro Teahupo’o harkens back to the “Dream Tour” ethos that former tour president Rabbit Bartholomew instilled in pro surfing.
Putting the best surfers in the best waves, the break at Teahupo’o is just that. A shallow reef that’s taken its fair share of skin over the years, Teahupo’o translated means “Wall of Skulls.” Located at the proverbial end of the road, there literally isn’t anywhere else to go once you arrive at “Chopes.” There’s one restaurant and no hotels. All of the surfers and WSL staff typically stay with local families and depend on them to feed them.
Thanks to the country’s embrace and hospitality, it’s one of the most popular stops on tour. And when the wave turns on, there’s really nothing like a huge Teahupo’o barrel.
By air – Fly to the capital of Tahiti Papeete, Fa’a’ā International Airport. From there it’s an hour and a half drive south around the island for 72 km’s until you get to the village of Teahupo’o.
There are a number of guesthouses and lodges in Teahupo’o. Check out the map below for all the accommodation deals and best hotels in Tahiti.
The 2023 Chopes Championship Tour Season event will be held from August 11-20, 2023.

Dear Rad Season,
Eager to attend the Teahupoo Championships in August & September 2019, please confirm that unlike Mavericks, the break is close to the beach for EZ surfing observation without binoculars.
