Reremoana (Te Ātihaunui a Pāpārangi, Te Aitanga a Hauiti) and Dion (Ngāti Porou) have built their love along the seabed of Tairāwhiti/Gisborne.
The pair’s relationship flourished out of a mutual love of freediving, the practise of diving using only your breath - either for exploration, or kohinga kai (collecting kaimoana). Their connection with the moana has only deepened alongside their growing whānau.
Take a dive with them as they explore their relationship with themselves and the moana.
