Aloe Up is proudly sponsoring the Manureva Aquafest 2016 Festival in the Cook Islands. The five day international watersports festival is set in one of the world’s most beautiful lagoons surrounding the South Pacific island of Aitutaki.
Each year, Manureva Aquafest brings together local and international competitors who showcase the unique conditions of the Aitutaki lagoon – pristine aqua blue water, warm and flat, perfect for freestyle, racing and big air kitesurfing, as well as Oe Vaka outrigger canoe and stand up paddleboard (SUP) races.
In special honour of our 2014 Manureva Aquafest waterman of the year, this year’s event will be dedicated to the memory of legendary Tetuatau Leverd, who sadly passed away late last year. In recognition of his love for the ocean and contribution to watersports in the South Pacific, we will be joined by special guests including international pro riders Jesse Richman (two times Kitesurfing World Champion), Ewan Jaspan (Australia’s number one professional kitesurfer) and a group of Tahitian watermen and waterwomen who will lead Etau’s memorial service.
