 Additional Information

Awesome right hander working on all tides, and even surfable with onshore SE winds. Not too heavy, with big or small barrels from 1-10 feet, over about 50-100m. Sets swing very wide when bigger, with essentially 2 peaks. Best with SW swell, north winds, maybe mid-high tide, 3-6 feet.

The only problem, as with much of Samoa, is that strong SE trade winds wreck it from March-October, so you have to get up early in Samoa (before about 9AM) unless you go from Oct-Feb, when there is less swell.
