Surfing With Whales

Between July and October, humpback whales put their infants in the world and breed in Polynesian waters. In December, it is very rare to admire this ocean giant. Large south and southwest swells are like whales: rather non-existent at this time of the year. However, on 3 December 2012, surfers rejoiced a beautiful surf session on the waves of 2.5 to 3m. The spectacular acrobatic ballet of a humpback whale came out to play before heading to other oceans.
