Pro surfer Johanne Defay calls the parity of prize money for men and women on the 2019 world surf tour “amazing”. The 2018 world number five trains on her home island La Reunion ahead of a historic season during which she could qualify for the Olympics.
The “yellow vest” movement continues to disrupt traffic on the French Indian Ocean Island of La Reunion where thirty police officers have been injured in five days of protests over rising living costs. The movement, which brought hundreds of thousands of people onto French streets last weekend to protest environmental taxes on fuel, has plunged La Reunion into its worst bout of violence in nearly 30 years.
A volcano on the French island of Reunion erupted on Sunday, shooting lava into the air. Piton de la Fournaise (or ‘Peak of the Furnace’), is a shield volcano on the eastern side of Reunion island.
