Dear John,

I'm a resident physician (junior doctor) in Burlington, Vermont and will be coming to work for a month at the hospital in American Samoa in May.  I'm considering the possibility of working there after residency, so I'm coming to check things out first.  More of a skiier than a surfer (I'm a beginner surfer) and my surfing experience is limited to what I could do when visiting my brother on the west coast, but it was a blast and I'd like to give a shot in A.S.    Any advice?  Thanks!  Cheers,  Mattie

Ha towel boy, very local scene, surfng by permission in front of many villages and local girls off-limits; also, now that tuna are disappearing along  with every ocean species from rapacious Asian sushi bars, the economy is sinking and thefts are increasing- still better fale' spirit than Western Samoa! Nua, if on, and vaccessible is one of the most beautiful rides in the Pacific, just watch out for stonefish!
