Ordering pizza from inside a Teahupo’o barrel

The name ‘Teahupo’o’, which was given to the Tahitian surfbreak widely considered one of the heaviest in the world, roughly translates to English as ‘to sever the head’ or ‘place of skulls’—and for good reason. Since 2000, there have been five recorded surfer deaths, and countless others have been dragged across the razor sharp reef that lies under just a few feet of water. And despite the risks involved, Visa sent surfer Kolohe Andino into the barrel armed with a mobile phone and a Go Pro camera in an effort to show viewers how easy it is to order pizza through its mobile platform.
