Trying to sum up or describe the definitive vision of “tropical paradise” that floats around most people’s imagination is probably best done in two words – South Pacific. This gigantic expanse of the deep blue Pacific, warmly embraces the randomly scattered island groups that dare break the surface, providing perfect conditions for an abundance of coral life in the form of fringing, platform, patch, barrier, oceanic ribbon, atolls and drowned coral reefs. Where there’s reef, there’s surf and early Polynesian cultures quickly learned how to integrate that surf into their daily lives. It’s not all plain sailing when it comes to catching some of these waves and many waves require a boat to reach them, high tide to cover them and above average skill to ride them.
