thanks for thinking of us... - Ooohhh. Local surfer proecting lineups now? Just a few years ago, Samoa had no true local surfers - the few that could call themselves local surfers were expats. Looks like the colonialists, aka foreigners, have imported surfing? or did the locals make their own boards and take it up all on themsemselves!

ha ha ha...defintely a joke...unless there are some experts on locals surfing Samoa out there you wouldn't know that there have been local guys surfing samoa for decades...several guys have charted the breaks now being surfed buy the camps. And "oooohh. Local surfer protecting lineups..." - that's classy...Go to any local's wave on the globe, drop a couple of boatloads off in the line up and see what the reaction is, (try the weekends for extra measure)...hmmm. But I'm sure most people "true" local surfers wouldn't need to deal with that type of bother - we are envious.
Some of Samoa's locals have actually charted the breaks that are now surfed by the camps and tourists but you would know that off course.
And lest not forget who imported what from whom...colonialists imported surfing from polynesia - Hawaii, but somehow people forget that and Samoa is known as the "Cradle of Polynesia" so that must at least count for something.
Our "true" local boys and girls are floating on bits of wood, old freezer doors, cooler bin lids, planks and plywood..., basically anything that can float but I'm sure the idea is the same...And no we didn't invent cars or beer as well but thanks heaps for thinking of us for those things too...
Peace

mahalo samoa from jack w. friend of salani - I have been to Samoa seven times, each time has been different, when you go somewhere for 2 weeks you never know what your gonna get,but each time I've gotten at least some perfect waves. About Salani,you naysayers have it all wrong, they provide jobs and look out for Salani village, The managers, Trina and Nick are really cool and the food was great. The first priority was always about surf. I have known Shaun Murphy 9 years and He is always sending stuff the village needs. Yes, the waves in Samoa are HEAVY, be ready, no beginners please. I'm 56 years old and have been surfing since 1959, and building boards here in San Clemente since 1979, thats 48 years,and still on sub 7'6" short boards, I have been on 45 surf trips since I turned 40, many places in the south Pacific, mainland Mexico, Hawaii, Costa Rica Pureto Rico. I LOVE SAMOA, I'LL BE BACK, THANK YOU SALANI

how it is... - …yes Samoa has some good waves, and yes samoa has local surfers…please don’t trash the place when you come over here and show some respect to the culture, tradition, beliefs and yes the lineup. After all it’s the overseas surfers (you) that are giving Surfing in Samoa a bad name to the local community. Most of you would be spanked if this was Hawaii but it’s not (yet)so chill and relax…you’ll get your share of waves. Most of you colonialists have only had tradition for a few hundred years unlike Samoa which goes back millenia, so please respect and bring your manners with you…this ain’t the Goldie or Bryon
Peace

maninoa surf camp - i stayed at maninoa sept / oct last year and got some really fun waves, but nothing amazing. they were quite heavy though even when small and i did still snap a few boards which was a bit annoying. i thought the food was great. it was pretty much all you can eat every meal and i never got sick once. i think i saw that local bodyboarder mentioned below and must say i have never seen more of joke of a guy before. he cant even paddle but was constantly mouthing off for no reason. apart from that there was always good vibes in the water and on land

to all - there is a massive cyclone on the way so dont come to samoa. who cares weather you can surf or not you dont live so dont come here unless your going to hook it up the good thing about this website people say where and when they are are stayin here its about time i add another board to my collection. GO HOME STAY HOME.
dont go name droppin either its stupid if someone hooks you up keep it to yourself and enjoy it next just pull some stand ova tactics.
BOY......
