Ben Thouard: Inside Chopes With One Of The World’s Best Photographers

As world-renowned photographer Ben Thouard releases his new book, Turbulences, filmmaker Morgan Maassen documents his creative process at one of the world’s most beautiful waves: Ben’s home break, Teahupo’o, Tahiti.

“Ben Thouard is based out of Teahupo’o, Tahiti, where he spends the vast majority of his time and energy swimming under the waves,” explains filmmaker Morgan Maassen. “He obsesses over the power and mystery of their extreme hydrodynamics.”

It is no coincidence that Teahupo’o is considered the most powerful wave in the world.

“His creative process is aimed at documenting the detail of their massive and violent explosions as they break overhead,” smiles Morgan. “Watching Ben work is akin to watching that of a Swiss watchmaker – there is so much precision in how he moves to capture these images. The end result he shares is so finely tailored for the public.”
