Nate Florence’s Impossible Ride

The craziest paddle-in effort seen at Teahupoo in years

We all know what John John Florence is capable of in the ocean, but it's his younger brother Nate who's causing a stir in the surfing world right now. The 19-year-old Hawaiian recently tackled Teahupoo during one of its most heated sessions, coming away with what's been dubbed the "impossible ride". Here it is, in all its crystal clear glory, for your viewing pleasure. Kelly Slater has dubbed this the "greatest ride ever paddled into at Teahupoo". There's not much else to say...this is as good as it gets.
