A quiet week at the lodge left the waves of the island perfect and un-ridden. It gave the guides and locals time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Savai’i; it’s almost as if they had a little vacation of their own.
Aganoa was a small 1-2 feet from the SW but that gave the option of adventuring to another one of our favourite surf breaks, Pastor Point, on the East coast. Here we were gratefully given pristine waves and uncrowded surfing.
Almost every afternoon the lodge has been front row for some of the most spectacular sunsets on Savai’i. As the sun sets in the distance, it makes way for a refreshing tropical storm to bring in the night sky. What a breathtaking contrast of mother nature to witness from your dining table while eating the freshest sashimi on the island.
During the day, calm conditions out in front of the lodge gave us the chance to do some snorkelling with our friendly local sea turtles and marine life.
There was a spike in the swell early this morning so fingers crossed it hangs around and the winds keep blowing off shore!
