Surfing Samoa, Samoa Surf Charters- Waterways Travel
Like the Hawaiian Islands, Tahiti, Samoa and any group of islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Samoa gets waves all year around. The dry season is April through October and it coincides with the south swell season. The wet season from November through March is dominated by North Pacific and southwest cyclone swells. The bonus during the wet season are the steady tradewinds from the north, which blow offshore on the south and southeast-facing sides of the islands
Nature is good to Samoa and the one the constant Samoan waves have is power. These islands are volcanic, so open ocean swells are moving at full speed and power when they all of a sudden trip over coral reefs that rise from out of the deep to eight feet shallow. Because of that, Samoan surf would have to be rated as challenging, and not for the beginner surfer.
