Surfing

I have surfed in Hawaii and costa rica. I am still a beginner and am wondering where and if samoa is a great place to get better. Ya know comfortably.  Thanks

RE: Surfing

Yeah i suppose.. in that a lot of the time (80 - 95%) you'll have the waves all to yourself and Pua trees is mellow enough for any level rider to surf comfortably... but there are no beach breaks (very few actual sandy beaches) so it's all reef and rock under those waves so when it's big but shallow "comfort" is not really an option when whiping out...

RE: Surfing

Hi Pat, i will be moving to AS in February. I do not know any surfers there nor spots other than which i see on wannasurf. All the spots look good. Alofau looks like a good wind protected spot during the trade wind season. I am coming from Anaheim California I will be teaching at Kanana Fou Theological Seminary. Please respond if you feel inclined. My whole family will be coming. I am 45.

Pat, How many surfers live in Am Samoa now?  I went to high school there (grad '77) and there were a toatal of 5 people who surfed.  Mainly surfed "lefts" and the rock, and the best day ever was at Pololo.  Huge - I was surfing a 7'2" gun and the faces were at least 3 times the size of my board.  A samoan/hawain guy ate it on the reef just as we started catching waves and had to take thim to the hospital.

Hi John, How do you like Kanana Fou? I'll be on Island in July and would love to surf and fellowship with you. I will be at SPICC. If Fala is back from Englang tell he hello from Jim. If you can get some days off I know where there some great surf.

RE: Surfing

Hey Tom,
    Just thought I'd follow up on you saying you'll be arriving soon. I've been here in AS for a month now and have been watching the waves break in diff locations. Problem is, I didn't bring my board along with me from the states and I'm having trouble finding surfers or anywhere to buy one. I'd love to at least watch someone else surf so just let me know. Thanks
