Samoa resides in the middle of the South Pacific and is a unique and culturally rich nation.
Samoa enjoys a tropical climate year round with two seasons. November to April is the wet season with temps ranging in the 30's accompanying an average of 3cm's of rain per day, usually in the afternoons. The wet season there is also a chance of a cyclone. The dry season is May to November with slightly lower temps and humidity.
Samoan culture is based on Fa'amatai, a system of government that has a chief governing an extended family or village. Most Samoans are Christian with with religion playing a pivotal role in most families. Dancing, singing and music are very popular past times in Samoa.
Samoa lies north east of Fiji and has the potential to offer surf all year round, depending on swell and wind conditions. The most consistent swells come from the Southern Ocean and intensify before crashing on Samoan shores. The best time to hit Upolu Island is April - October to enjoy some magical warm water reef breaks.
The water temp is 27-29 degrees all year round so a few pairs of boardies, booties, sunscreen and your surf craft is all you need.
