A Polynesian sport: stone lifting

published on the 1st of December 2017 by Moea

Each year, on Rangiroa Atoll, a cultural and sporting event is held for a whole week. The Farerei Haga. During this week, several challenges are made available to residents of the atoll or neighboring islands. They participate with some pride and some of them, like Fisher shown in the photo, is recognized as a professional of the stone lifting and climbing coconut tree. Every year it's a pleasure to watch them challenging each other!

About the atoll of Rangiroa

Rangiroa is a former volcanic island (which is why we call it an atoll) of the Tuamotu Archipelago located in French Polynesia, somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Our atoll is yet rich in aquatic and natural activities, including its worldwide recognition for its diving centers.
