We were lucky enough to be in Tahiti during the 130th ' Heiva I Tahiti', the main cultural event of French Polynesia. Traditional sports including coconut tree climbing, javelin throwing, fruit carrying, coconut husking, outrigger races and stone lifting were held  throughout the week
Javelins were aimed at a coconut on a pole about 10 metres high!
The javelins that hit the coconut. . . . .
