Be friends with the Australian Crew. Then ask. They useully go to Coco's though.
It goes off! Really hollow barells and heavy. Pretty deep for a reef aswell.
Totally sick. Find someone who knows it then you will have to sell your house you will love Samoa so much

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 !!!

- 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.
