Secret Shacks in the Canary Islands
Located 220km (138mi) NW of Tahiti, Raiatea is the largest and the administrative centre of the Leeward Islands. In the past named Havaii, original land of the Maohi, centre of religion and culture 1000 years ago, Raiatea is the sacred island, proven by the number of her ‘Marae’. The surf spots are more remote and quality is highly dependant on swell direction and wind exposure. Miri-Miri’s intense rights or Toauri’s classic lefts are the main names (again with some localism) working on smaller SW swells.
