My trip to French Polynesia

After showing a few pic's from Tahiti here on Rip'n Snap, I'v been asked if I could show some pic's from my own trip to Tahiti - so here they are - a little photo journey, shot by my daughter Marie in 2006, from our trip to French Polynesia - a place I really enjoyed and a place I simply have to go back to on day. 

PS. it's not a surfing essay, more at view of this unique place it self.
(click on pic's for a larger view)

 Typical Polynesian tattoo

 Hinano - the local beer 

Amazing colors and lot's of nice swells along the reefs. Surfing conditions in French Polynesia are fantastic, with some really epic and world famous spots.

 The local are so nice, always smiling and extremely friendly.

 Local fishermen from Moorea, enjoying an cold Hinano beer - smiling of course.

Locals collecting seashell's for dinner - check the surf in the background. 

 Smiling mother at the marked at Moorea, one of my favorite islands. 

 Flower trees all over the islands created a fantastic smell of sweetness in the air.

We had a few super hiking trips at Moorea.

Local doctor clinic and school.

Enjoying the shadow of an old tree - the midday temp's were really HOT.

 My daughter surrounded by fish, and it was always like that every time we snorkeled or just "took a dip" in the turquoise water.

 All these pic's of different fish are shoot over the water surface on one of the very few wind still days. They show how clear the ocean really is out there, and I only show a very small amount of fish spices. We saw hundreds of different  spices all over the place, it's such a biological rich and amazing ocean, surrounding these beautiful islands. 

Who can understand why the French wanted to make nuclear test out there, who the  f--k do they think they are !!!. Former French president Jacques Chirac gave the green light for some of these totally unacceptable nuclear tests. 

Such a strange and narrow-minded no brain behavior!!???


 This is one of the places we lived - it was absolutely perfect for a little morning dip and snorkeling all day long.

 Reef sharks in all sizes were very common.

 Octopussy's as well - such amazing animals.

 Beaty & Perfection.

A night view of the Manihi island lagoon.

 Early morning view of a black pearl farm from the island of Manihi. These pearl farms produce some of the most perfect and valuable black pearls in the world. 

While I'm making this post it poring down outside - what the Hell am I doing here in Denmark.???? 

Every man dies, not every man lives!!!!
