sailing and surfing in samoa

« on: January 31 2006 15:01:00 »

hi, we are going to samoa in august on our sailboat and will be looking to do lots of surfing while we're there!  would be happy to here from people who know good spots (esp. ones you can only reach by boat/dinghy) and also if you want to join us as crew... best to send us an email: as we don't get to access the internet so often (v. slow in the pacific!!) thanks

Hi,I was there with my boat two years ago.Samoa is not a perfect place to surf for sailors as the main anchorages are all on the north side of the island.Apia and few others on the upper island.Forgot the name now.Some friends of ours did anchor on the south side of Upolu behind an island and had alright surf.Best deal is to rent a car and go looking for waves.Even tough it is affected by the trades it is very consistent and you will score for sure.Local people are very nice.Do not forget to buy duty free liquor at Vailima and sell all your old books at the grocery store.See you

Hi,I was there 2 years ago on my boat.Apia is a good anchorage but far away from the surf spots.Best bet is to rent a car and go look for waves.There is one anchorage on the south side behind an island but I haven't been there myself.Savai has great surf but again no anchorage,go overland and stay on one of the beach fales that are affordable enough
