Matavai Bay - December, 1788. - I am researching the history of Tahitian surfriding and have a surf report from December 1788 at Matavai Bay indicating the waves were closing out over the Dolphin Bank (outside of the point in approximately 10ft of water)and pushing through to the beach.I assume that this a relatively rare swell event, but any modern feedback was be greatly appreciated.
