Catch world-class waves without the crowds in a Polynesian paradise. Despite being the largest island in Samoa, Savai’i and it’s impressive breaks are still something of a secret. At Aganoa Lodge you’ll have exclusive access to a beach sheltered by a barrier reef. High tide brings Little Left, the only beginner’s wave on the island, which breaks on the edge of the lagoon. For something more challenging, just ask the lodge’s experienced guides. They’ve got the drop on the island’s other breaks – there are right- and left-handers pumping at between two and 14 feet – and can usually get you there within 30 minutes (the furthest is an hour’s drive). When you’re not paddling out, go hiking to waterfalls, pull on a snorkel or try your luck catching dinner. In the evening, retreat to the deck for a cold one as the sun goes down.
All-inclusive, seven-day surf trips at Aganoa Lodge depart weekly, year-round, from about US$1495.
Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, the surfing guides will tailor your experience to your skill level to ensure you’re on your board and catching the best waves in no time.
