Thomas Traversa Takes On The Treacherous, But World Class Waves Of Reunion Island

Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails) would normally be competing in the Canaries at this time of year, but given the current circumstances he has taken the opportunity to visit Reunion Island, which offers world class waves, but also has more than it’s fair share of danger with regards to sharks- between 2011-15 there were 17 shark attacks in Reunion - 7 of which were fatal which led to a ban on almost all surfing in 2013.

Surfing has since returned with the implementation of shark nets and shark lookout devices. 

Anyway, less of the sharks and more of the action… it’s over to Thomas who launches into aerials galore on this super fast, reeling reef break. You can see the highlights @
