More than an earthly paradise or a surfer's paradise, French Polynesia is the cradle of a culture.
It is in this ancestral land of board sports that Mathieu Crepel, Ludovic Dulou, Pierre Lopez, Jérémy and Ludovic Teulade decided to experience an extraordinary adventure.
From Tahiti and the Teahupo'o Peninsula to the Tuamotu Islands, the five watermen went to meet men and women, each with a unique relationship with nature and its water sports.
This journey, charged with Mana, the mystical energy that vibrates in the Pacific islands, is a true return to the roots.
