#BillabongPro Tahiti - Wipeouts!
Every year we go to Tahiti and watch the boys push the limits of what can be done when paddling into big, wide-open barrels. Part of pushing the limits is paying the price - and the boys pay a very hefty price. Here's a gallery of some epic wipeouts from past events.

During the Code Red swell of 2011, guys like Mark Healey found themselves airborne more often than not.
This doesn't look like a big day for Teahupoo, but that doesn't mean that Joel Parkinson didn't taste the reef after this early ejection. Photo: ASP/Kirstin

Not certain what would hit with more force: a Teahupoo lift or a Red Bull jet-ski? Money's on the lip.
