Once again the F-ONE team went off to discover new landscapes and live an extraordinary adventure.
Raphaël SALLES put on his captain’s hat for the time of a far-off journey to meet his Tahitian team and experience the magic surrounding their idyllic islands. Accompanied by his faithful sidekicks as well as newcomers, they went on to board two catamarans for 25 days of pure happiness in another world.
Tahiti is well and truly as you can imagine: wild, powerful, with the force of the ocean being ever-present and where sharing and wisdom are common values within a whole people.
Riders : Mitu MONTEIRO, Poenaiki RAIOHA, Robinson HILARIO, Micka FERNANDEZ, Marie SWITALA, Aude LIONET CHANFOUR, Alexandre CAIZERGUES, Filippe FERREIRA, Manutea MONNIER, Rémi QUIQUE, Patrice CHANZY, Raphaël SALLES.
The 2014 SUP World Cup (Waterman League) ended with the famous step of “La Torche” which took place from October 25th to 29th.
The conditions were at the appointment and competitors were able to show us some action on the waves of the Breton coast.
Poenaiki RAIOHA, only 17 years old, is one of the youngest competitors of the World Tour in the senior category, but he made his place among the biggest.
The strong and powerful surf that he proposed is making impression. His slide, his engagement, his radical style make him one of the best on the international tour.
After his title of ISA 2014 World Champion in the SUP surfing men category in June and for his first participation in the World Tour, Poenaiki finished to the awesome 4th place of the World Tour.
A deserved place for a talented SUPer that is announcing a 2015 season filled with emotion and bounces!
Congratulations to our young Tahitian rider for this great achievement!
