Salani was more than I could have expected!
The place is amazing, amazing dense foresty mountains and at the foothills of the mountains are these amazing little villagers that house some of the friendliest people I have ever come across. I wonder if it’s the simpler style of life? The waves were pumping. A heavy epic left and super bowly fun right that you can view from your stilted cabins verandah.
The staff are what really made it enjoyable. From the manager Jesse and his beautiful little family to the amazing ladies who made us the best meals and made sure we always had a cold ‘taula’ (Local beer) in our hand. All this while smiling and joking around with us making us completely at home. The surf guides became our mates straightaway and were immediately part of the crew. They lead us to epic sessions in and out of the water and nothing was ever a drama for them. Legendary!
Samoa blew me away, it’s so untouched and beautiful!
