Surfing Western Somoa« on: March 03 2006 18:03:00 »
I'm looking to surf in western somoa during june/July this year.
I generally surf beach and reef breaks on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia. I ride two 6'4" boards and wanting to know if I will be under gunned on the Somoan reef breaks.
I'm looking to surf more of the intermediate reef breaks and would like to more about the number and locations of breaks.
Also would like to know about package deals with surf transfers verses go it alone.
Any info would be appreciated.

Go alone,,,,,bar the package,, you will get cheap fale and good spots are within a paddle especially on Savaii..
I took 6'4 last time (honeymoon) in last June but taking 7'0 with me this Feb.

Samoa as a surf destination should be considered as a long trip. I had waves for the 10 days I was there, amost everyday in fact. But never as good as you see in the photos. It really needs the south swells to brew up down by New Zealand and to push up as a south west swell. That makes the reefs fire and gives a better angle for the South east trades to clean it up and blow more offshore. So dont go there execting it to be like Indo. But do go there, there are so many setups, nice people, and a great place to hang when not surfing too. Beware the surf camps who overchagrge, if you are adenturous you will find a fale on the beach with a paddle to the same waves that guys are paying $10 USD to go to by boat.

Yeah I agree, just hit it over there. MAybe book a few nights with a resort to start you out and get to know waves and weather, then places abound for the intrepid to discover.
