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. We're waiting for you. We want to share our waters with you. And we want to show you what you've been missing all this time. We want you to know that paddling in French Polynesia should be on the "Must Do" list of every surfskier. We will not just race. When the race is over, we will celebrate together and respect, friendship and humility will take over the competitive spirit.
