Here at Swellnet, the first we heard about the Fierro sisters of Tahiti was in 2018, when Harry Bryant relayed a story from the channel at Teahupoo.
On a guts up six-to-eight foot day, when chins were jutted and faces unsmiling, oldest sister Vahine paddled past with a frangipani behind her ear.
"We hadn't even seen a girl for ten days, and then out paddled this girl with a huge smile and frangipani in her hair," said a bemused Haz.
"She paddled straight to the inside, said hello to everyone...and then took off on the next set."
"Simple as you like."
Fast forward three years and Vahine is sitting equal-fifth on the Challenger Series, one good result away from a berth on next year's Championship Tour, while her younger sisters Heimiti and Kohai are also blossoming into great surfers.
Recently, filmmaker Morgan Maassen spent some time in Tahiti with the Fierro sisters and today he posted this short film.
