Currents: Tired of the same ol’ lunch experience? Next time you’re in Tahiti, try the floating snack shack in channel at Teahupoo. Spin the Globe: This well shaped right point has great historical influence; a place Lord Nelson sailed to in 1805. You’ve spun the Globe to Cape Trafalgar, Spain.Flashpoint: On August 17, 2000, Laird Hamilton made history when he rode “The Millennium Wave.” This was Laird’s first trip to Tahiti with a full crew to shoot photos with Oxbow. This first-hand account of the surfers and tow partners takes you along for the “heaviest wave ever ridden.”The Best I Ever Saw: Looking through a copy of “Photo: Grannis,” the author sees a photo of his favorite surfer: a classic black-and-white photo captioned “unidentified.” With the mystery solved, Schurman recollects Shaun’s classic maneuvers and impressions he made when he was just a grom at local Santa Barbara breaks throughout the ’60s.
