The South Pacific has Its Own Mentawais

By on

You want to know how good the waves can get in French Polynesia? We're not talking about Chopes here peeps, this cut was shot a little over the way in the Tuamotu islands, featuring one of the South Pacific's rising lights in Mihimana Braye.

That's a name you may be familiar with. During lockdown, Mihimana's been one of the standouts at Chopes but also, around the uncrowded rights in the Tuamotus.

“We have a lot of potential on the islands,” he tells MSW. “We have our own Mentawaiis, and I called the edit Island Fever because if you ever been there it’s really hot but the waves are fire.” Enjoy the quarantine dream, above.
