SHOOT: Kite surfers in Moorea

While I was on my honeymoon in French Polynesia — more on that in a later post — on the island of Moorea, I saw some kite surfers in the distance.

As I really feel attracted to the sport, I discussed with some locals who told me this amazing spot was not far from the hotel and the surfers real nice. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to try it out myself during this trip but I thought I could photograph some kite surf action. So, one morning, Anka and I rented some bikes and rode to the «Plage des Tipaniers».

The site was amazing and I tried to capture these men and women dancing with the wind on the aqua blue lagoon water thanks to their colorful sails. Some of them noticed I was shooting and came real close to me, actually flying over me. Trying to capture the feeling of speed and lightness they demonstrate was a challenging task but I couldn’t get enough of it.

I hope these photos procure you a sense of warmth, airness and freshness for the gray winter days ahead of us!

Have a wonderful day!

    That’s incredible! I didn’t think they’d be able to get that high above the water! I’d love to visit Tahiti and Her Islands, it would be the perfect honeymoon destination.
