Samoa – Makes up the majority of the Western islands in the South Pacific ocean. Close to other surfing gems like Fiji, New Caledonia and Tahiti, Samoa is a swell magnet all year round however the best time to go is from May – September. The best time for kiting is in the months of May and September due to strong trades that kick up at about midday each day.

Sa’Moana Surf Resort

Sa’Moana Surf Resort – Sa’Moana Resort provides beachside accommodation and caters for up to 26 guests in ‘3 Star’ rated fales (bungalows) with private facilities and a decor in vibrant Polynesian tones to complement the fales timber features. Centrally located with panoramic views over the south shore’s spectacular coastline the main bar-restaurant  features a large undercover front deck for dining and relaxing, a lounge featuring large flat screen TV, DVD player, Hi Fi, pool table and games/book library plus a fully stocked bar. This is the ultimate location at Sa’Moana, after a rewarding surf, tour or relaxing day, to kick back and enjoy your favourite cocktail or refreshment.

Sean Woolnough is the underrated Aussie charger, he paddles into things you’d loose sleep over, but you’d never know as he is as humble as they come and is just doing it for the love! Sean added the kite to his list of ocean going activities 3 years ago and is one of the most well rounded wave riders getting around and his latest mission is to see how heavy of a wave he can whip himself into either kiting, towing or surfing.

The Trip

You will be greeted by Sa’Moana surf resort staff at the airport on arrival who will transport you to the resort and show you to your accommodation. After you have checked in you are free to do what you please. We have 2 transfer boats set up to take you surfing or fishing as well as 2 Samoana surf guides who will be looking after you all for the entire trip. You will also be given professional instruction by Sean and his media team which includes a photographer and videotographer who will also be there to support you in anyway they can and obviously capture as much footage of you as they can so you have a souvenier to take home with you.

You will be treated to 3 meals a day – breakfast, lunch and dinner. Trips into Apia (the capital) swimming with turtles in the local turtle sanctuary, visiting waterfalls as well as a few other activities. You will also have access to jet ski, kayaks and other water sports equipment.
