Quote from: Rico
Few Photos of - MATARIKI - before and after Restoration and upgrade.
This "Magical" vessel was created for -Open Ocean Surfing- and also Lagoon like Environment. Shaped like a fish this design transfer is Mana into the water by gliding over the waves it encounter creating is own free flow propulsion. Va'a Paddling in open ocean is a ancient Art Form that only can be explored while in total symbioses with the element or BEING in the Now.Connecting with each waves to diminish hardship. Paddling has a profound connection with our everyday lives reflecting on the flow of energy traveling inside and outside. what we call mirror effect is the reflect of our own reality ..what is above is also below..

Definitely - have a look at him ;) Ask him at Facebook if you like to. He loves to share his knowledge with people who are interested in what he is doing!
I'll add another thread about paddles later on, but for now I'm off to bed;)

That's just gorgeous! I love the polished wood, and it certainly looks perfect on that beach!

Always applaude and am amazed by those that can see the finished end from something so rough/broken.  Then to see the end piece . . . beautiful!!
