Tahiti Bound documentary series to feature surfers on road to Paris Olympics

"Tahiti Bound," a six-episode documentary series tracking the world's top surfers through the Paris Olympics, premieres Sunday on NBC Sports and Peacock.

The 44-minute episodes will feature athletes already qualified for the Olympics as they compete on this season's World Surf League Championship Tour.

A final highlight show recapping the Olympics and the WSL season airs Oct. 13.

Surfing at the Olympics will be in Tahiti off the village of Teahupo’o, an annual stop on the WSL tour.

Teahupo’o, which roughly translates to "Wall of Skulls," is known for generating the heaviest waves on tour, making it a sometimes dangerous venue.
