[SURFSKI] Maraamu Surfski Downwinder 2013

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Maraamu surfski 2013 is a downwind race between the island of Tahaa and Bora Bora. Surf, surf and more surf. Mara’amu, the prevailing wind from July to October, can blow between 25-35kts from the southeast. It will generate a windswell that one can surf from Tahaa to Bora Bora. The Mara’amu Surfski Race is more than a race. It’s the gathering of all the polynesian surfski paddlers. A channel crossing, a challenge that is the climax of the paddling surfski season. For a competitive paddler, it’s a great achievement to write his name to the Maraamu Hall of Fame. From all over the world, you will come to compete with us

This right point setup is pretty unique in Tassie – close to rocks takeoff onto what looks like a long loose sand/bouldery draining barrel section into another fast tube section with a small windows for turns, then another super fast sucky sand drainer right on a big full stopper.
