Here are a few photos from my trip to Western Samoa in 2009. We got skunked on the surf, but got to explore the amazing island of Western Samoa. This island is what I would imagine Hawaii must have been like about 100 years ago, with no developments and raw tropical beauty.
About two weeks after we left the island a tsunami hit Samoa and destroyed most of Western Samoa and Salani Surf Resort where we stayed. The rebuilding is still continuing today, and we hope to be able to visit Samoa and Salani once again in the near future, surf permitting of course.
