samoa sucked - went witha crew last year and got skunked, waves were shitty.
trade winds no swell, crappy boats,terrible food.
it was a pretty shitty trip overall, maybe if we scored some toobs we'd be stoked but we stayed manainoa surf camp. DONT STAY THERE. afterwards people told me savai has the better spots. we got skunked both ways on our lugage to boot.go to indo for barrels !!!

sick - i went there for two weeks and scored brilliant waves almost every day. we had something like 3 bad days but they were used to recover. deffinatly go in october because there is little wind and still good sized waves.

- I was in Samao this April and brought my board without any plans for going...hooked up with local resort and went out to YTops for session and it was went off for 4 hours straight. Glassy, big and fast.Surfing trips are always a crapshoot. Suck it up and take a chance. Whats the worst that'll happen? Stuck in Samoa? Shit, that sucks.And in all honesty, I should have never been out there. Only surfed for two crappy New England summers and past couple months in NZ. Reef was shallow and scary, board was a mere 5'11" swallow tail...best 4 hours in the water ever. Again, my advice is to suck it up and go for it. Only way you're gonna find out anything.
