The video immediately following the one in the OP is pretty cool as well, as it features them still on the same island, but now they’re cruising around on electric surfboards that do the hydrofoil thing where you end up above the water:

Sorry, I bailed at 1:45 when she started singing like Snow White. Not even 2 minutes in, and it already smacks of so much privilege. :roll_eyes:

Sailors? The folks that run their pleasure yacht are the sailors, not the phony[s] playing sailor.

Yeah. I had a similar experience. Watching rich people talk about their success building property, running businesses and sailing yachts is tiresome. I mean, I don’t begrudge them their happiness, and that resort looks real nice, but there is a lot poverty in Tonga. Surely there are stories of tenacity and resilience from locals on other islands?
