An all-round epic trip to somewhere different...
We were all buzzing to get over to somewhere new and find some uncrowded waves and we did just that. Most of us short boarded but myself and one other took our logs in case we had small swell. Well we didn’t have small swell. In fact, there was plenty and we scored some solid lefts to ourselves. But when the wind got up, we’d head to the other side of the island and luck into some perfect 2ft runners for the logs. Waves for all.
I was super impressed by Brent Ross, the operator. Not only did he show us the difference between our cover-ups and his backdoor-sectioned barrels, but he accommodated our every need. He always had us in the right spot, away from the crowd but in the best spot. His surf knowledge was only matched by his local knowledge.
His family and everyone at Samoan Surfaris looked after us superbly. I was stoked with a bed and a mosquito net and some awesome local and international food.
I’m definitely going back.
