The first of the 2017 WTT events held in Punaauia Tahiti embraced a range of events including prone paddleboarding, SUP, ocean swimming, rowing machine and beach running. Team Tahiti Mistral, managed by Stéphan Lambert, organiser of the WWT, was very happy with the results and of the first time efforts of Rete Ebb in his first hit out at this event. Veteran WWT competitor and 3 time past winner, Bruno Tauhiro managed a 2nd overall position just behind fellow Team Mistral Air Tahiti Nui athlete, Steeve Teihotaata. In the SUP distance race, Steeve (Stock Equinox 14') finished just ahead of Rete (Stock Vortex XL 14') giving Mistral 1st and 2nd positions in the battle for WWT positions.
An initiative this year, is to offer a one design of board for all. The Lombok Tribe Board 11'6 was chosen for it's versatility between jnr aged paddles and adults. It proved to be a highly popular event, which may have been a novelty idea, but as soon as the starters siren was heard, racing became serious. What could be better than all on the same board racing and a great use of the inflatable SUP board.
