Wake up - I lived in Samoa for 2 years and surfed all over both islands. DONT BELIVE THE HYPE. The place cannot handle 3 surf camps. The waves are blown out 75% of the time and most places are very tidal 1 or 2 hour session max. Boulders is not offshore on the trade its "crossoff" and it only breaks at low cause of the cliffs, and because its protected from the wind its also protected from the swell so it needs a fair bit of swell to break. So hit those surf camps with that next time they try to suck 200 bucks a day out of you for a trip to samoa. And a boat doesnt help. All that being said Samoa is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Its people are amazing. If you do go, do your self a favor and stay with the locals its way better than hanging with a bunch of clowns in a surf camp.(crying cause there not getting surf) If you wanna hang out with a bunch of westerners why bother leaving home. TAHITI BLOWS SAMOA AWAY BY FAR!!!!!!!!!

Surfing Samoa - My advice to Adrian: In preparing for your trip to paradise I would suggest you push yourself hard at your local breaks leading up to your trip. Surf in all conditions and different spots. Try surfing some new spots that you've never surfed at before because that is what you'll be doing on your trip. Good luck and I wish I was going!Talofa...
to salani rocks - Hi Sean!
experience necessary? - Hey,I am planning a surf trip in June. I have surfed the last five years and would say I am intermediate level. Am I over my head in Samoa. Mostly surfed Sydney and east coast no reef breaks except Margaret river few years ago. Any suggestions on places. Happy with 4-6ft waves and likely won't pull into a 10ft wave.
Where to stay for cheap - I was planning on visiting Samoa for a couple weeks during July-August and will be traveling solo. I'm looking for any info on cheap places($10-$20 per/night) or if anyone has had any luck staying with the locals. I was hoping to get the Samoan experience without coughing up a couple grand to the "resorts". I've done this at other places in the S.Pacific but wonder if anyone has any info on where to stay, how long the paddles are, how bad the currents can be, etc.Thanks for any help
Salani Rocks - As far as activities for non surfers goes there's plenty to do at Salani. It's so hot over there all you want ot do is be in the water anyway and there's an awesome waterway right there that you can swim in or just float around in the sun. You can take a canoe upstream for miles if you want or you can walk into town and mix it up with the locals. The people there are so cool and as for that last messager saying it's not pituresque, what are you talking about? It's such a beautiful place! If you can't find stuff to do in a place like this then maybe it's time you got yourself at least a bodyboard and start getting out there!

Salani is a bit out of the way - Not much action there and its hardly picturesque. Samoana looks more hospitable and inviting for the ladies.Depends what your looking for. If local natural attractions like waterfalls and visiting local villages suits then book it. Its a bit of a hike from Apia where there are some shops that may interest you and bars, nightclubs etc.
help, a bit of non-surfing advice please - I am the non-surfing girlfriend of an ultra-keen surfer. He wants to take me with him on a 10 day surfing trip in June and we are just negotiating destinations. At the moment Salani Surf Resort looks like the goer. Just wondering if anyone has any advice as to what there is for non-surfers to do while staying at Salani. If there's not a whole lot, do you know of any other surf destinations that might keep both him and me happily occupied for 10 days?

Kerry Coconuts is inconsistent - I know this for a fact as I lived in Samoa. When its on its pretty good though.You are pretty right in the rest of your message about surf tours in general.Good call
