The second half of this week has shown us some traditional Samoan culture in the form of Tapa cloth making, fia fia dance and an explosive display of a tropical storm that whizzed past the lodge, not actually touching down but close enough to provide some spectacular evening entertainment. The waves have been a mellow 2-4 ft but still packing that power that can only come from swells that travel the South Pacific to get here. To compliment this, the winds have been almost breathless.
One particular dusk session was shot from the water by one of our surf guides, Tom, who captured some shimmering images in the fading afternoon sun. Classic golden hour. Surfers and body boarders alike this week have spread across Aganoa’s peaks with nobody else in sight to enjoy some warm water waves with their best mates. We as surfers are already lucky enough to be involved with such a unique, positive lifestyle and sport, but to be able to share that with your mates in tropical isolation is seriously something special.
