Hawaii Nui Vaa 2017


The Polynesian people who initially populated Hawaii were some of the earth's first seagoing peoples, and the key to maritime success was having the right type of boat.  In this case, it was a boat style called a Va'a, which is an outrigger type canoe that has proven its seaworthiness over the centuries.  Contributor and pilot Tahiti Fly Shoot flew over the 2017 Hawaiki Nui Va'a race and created this spectacular drone video of the event, which is the largest such outrigger canoe event in the world.
