The island of Tahiti, focal point and top tourist destination in French Polynesia. Its emblem is the strongly- scented, white Tiaré flower and for the tourist it offers mountain peaks, tropical forests, marae, and the warmth of the Polynesian people with the music festivals, outrigger races and culture of the black pearl. However, for surfers, no other place offers more perfect line-ups than French Polynesia. This photo was taken in August 2000 using a medium-format panoramic camera early in the morning to capture the pristine conditions created by the offshore winds blowing down from the mountains.
