Tahiti & Mo'orea launch for surf
Pape'ete, Tahiti - March 20 - Surf travel adventure book author Tony Garcia launched his series of
books on islands of Tahiti and Mo'orea. Also called the Society Islands it
is the home to world class surf breaks like Tea'upoo, Taapuna, Matauvau Pass
and the black sand beach breaks of Papenoo.
These islands are part of
Polynesia which forms a triangle with Hawaii in the north, New Zealand in
the west and Easter Island in the east. The Polynesian islands were some of
the last places on earth settled by humans.
Historians agree that the
ancestors of the present Polynesians came from the islands of Indonesia and
Philippines. These men and women settled the islands of Polynesia between
200 BC and 400 AD in waves of migration. The reasons for these migrations
are not known though some speculate that it could have been war or
overpopulation that drove people to find new homes.
These long migration voyages
were remarkable feats of navigation and endurance only achieved by the
European's 1500 years later. European explorers like Ferdinand
Magellan, Jacob Roggeveen, Louis-Antoine de Bougainville and James Cook all
passed through Polynesia during their voyages of exploration.
The island's visitors brought
back tales of a paradise where life was simple and women were uninhibited.
These stories fired the imaginations generations of westerners who came to
paint, write or just drop out, painters like Paul Gauguin and writers Herman
Melville and Robert Louis Stevenson.
