This week unraveled as a string of picturesque mornings. Each graced us with a slow-rising sun whose rays would softly scatter across the glassy ocean slick. These rays would beam down upon us all day until the sun would tuck in neatly behind the palm trees beyond beautiful Aganoa cove. Needless to say, we had perfect weather all around. Post cards would be jealous.
The generous 3-5 ft South and South-East swells approached us from deep within the Pacific Ocean only to rear up when meeting Savai’i’s volcano-formed reefs, gently greeting the sweet offshore winds sweeping over the roofs of Aganoa’s beachfront fales. While we did visit other breaks the majority of surfing was out the front. Because, why would anyone leave such amazing conditions? From mals to paddle boards to thrusters, everyone enjoyed mother nature's gifts.
We did, however, visit the nostalgic ruins of an old church on the Western coast after admiring an aggressive demonstration of power from the Taga blowholes. The week was completed in the freshwater oasis and waterfall.
