An Escape to NEVERLAND
Mesmerized by the beauty and mysticism of the island we were ready to take on a never-ending childhood having adventures whilst interacting with fairies, pirates and mermaids. To give you an idea of how incredible everything was, I would just like to mention here that we were actually picked up from the airport by boat! Raiatea, which actually translates to “faraway heaven,” was once the cultural and religious center of the Society Islands.
Today French Polynesia and its many islands are known as sanctuary for marine life, especially its pearls, many shark species and beautiful reefs are famous! As professional windsurfers, we were lucky enough to be invited to Raiatea as the ambassadors for the Tahiti Freeride Cup, but, as SUP passionate, we obviously saw the opportunity to take our boards to explore around the lagoons and surf the Tahitian coast and reefs.
