Ben Thouard grew up in the south of France. His father a sailor, taught him everything he knew about the ocean and her moods. Thouard attended photography school in Paris and by the age of 19 found himself on the Hawaiian island of Maui capturing images he had been dreaming of for years. After extensive travel searching the world for waves Ben ended up in Tahiti where he now calls the world famous wave at Teahupoo his home and favorite place to photograph.
Thunder is exactly what this wave sounds like when it cracks the reef. The lip of this monster is thicker than most waves you'll ride in your lifetime. Teahupoo is a force to be reckoned with and we reckon you hang this beauty on your wall and call it a day.
This Great Breaks image by Ben Thouard is printed using high definition photographic imaging on white aluminum. The result is an image that radiates with the same energy and power of the ocean as the day it was captured. No expensive framing necessary. Your print comes hang-ready, with mounting hardware already affixed to the image mount. All you need is a hammer, a nail, and a wall to hang them on.
