After my Bora Bora adventure was done and dusted, my next mission was to check out the famous surf beach in Tahiti known as Teahupo’o about an hour away by car from Papeete.
I wanted to take a taxi but Tahitian being Tahitian told me the cost would be exorbitant and suggested renting a car. 
Instead of renting a car and putting myself in harm’s way since folks there drive on the left side of the road, I decided to take a bus. 
It would be a great way to mingle with the locals.The bus ride was very interesting. 
I waited for the bus in front of the ferry terminal near my hotel at 6.30 am and arrived at the area at around 9am.
Thanks to Kevin from Moorea for helping me out during the first half of my journey to Teahupo’o.

Without you, I would have been lost for sure.
Taking the bus to Teahupoo was rather interesting as you will need to take two shuttle services but don’t worry, the locals in Tahiti are very friendly and if you get lost they will somehow help you. 
Once there I was kind of disappointed, the beach looked plain and it was quite dirty. 
I was about  to leave when a lady told me to walk across the bridge and check the area there.
I concurred since the bus would take an hour to make its way back.
There I met a few locals, including one French man who had set up a home based there.
There was one cafe but it didn’t pique my interest for further investigation and so I headed to the beach and took some product shots there.
The hilly background made great product shots. 
As it was low tide, I did not see those high waves that the Teahupo’o beaches are famous for but nonetheless it was a pretty cool experience.
After that I headed back to the bus stop and went back to Papeete.
