CocoBoule in Fiji - Petanque how it ought to be

I recently found out about coconut petanque which is played in Fiji.

Apparently the coco-boules are freely available in all of the valid federation sizes and weights. Striations are created with a few light machete strokes.

Some of the French boule manufacturers might want to look into the marketing and branding of coco-boules as this variation on petanque takes off.

The Fiji umpires do seem a bit lax though as I do see some open-toed shoe (or no shoe) violations...

I wish I could live in Fiji and play petanque there all of the time. What a heaven
