#SURFING is one of the most popular sports in #Tahiti and a whole economy has developed around this activity, from the manufacturers of surfboards to lines of specialist clothing and accessories. Surfing is everywhere, making Tahiti and its islands a real surfing nation. Throughout the year a multitude of competitions take place such as the Billabong Pro at Teahupo'o.
