Here are a few emails from those who traveled to Western Samoa:

"Kyle, thanks for setting us up with salani. The trip was awesome! We pretty much scored the whole time. The first day we got there we surfed about 5 foot boulders, then the next day maybe 6+ salani rights,the third day was a bit smaller but perfect! we got one more big day a week later and every other day between and after, it never dropped below 3 feet. The whole staff, managers, and boatmen were awesome. The manager, gregg, and one of the boatmen, john, even set up an afternoon to take me to watch a samoan cricket game even though no one else wanted to go. Even the crew of other guests were super cool. We made some good contacts with folks from so. cal., new zealand, and australia. yeah, salani is a winner! thanks again.

"As a first timer on a surf tour, Salani Surf Resort was a most memorable experience. The surf was awesome, the staff was super accommodating, service and the food was first class. Aside from the 90+% humidity, the trip was well worth the cost, especially with the group of surfers we traveled with. I'd recommend Salani to anyone who loves to surf and enjoy a South Pacific adventure. I'd do it right away before it gets to commercialized and westernized. Tofa ( good-bye)."

"I wanted to thank both of you for arranging the Salani trip and giving me the opportunity to join a wonderful group of people on the trip. You two were great group leaders. Everything was so well planned and organized. The trip was an unforgettable experience for me! Not only did we get great waves, I met so many nice people there and learned so much about the Samoan culture. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable. The food was outstanding - I expected eating mostly fruits and fish everyday but I was surprised with the diversity of the meals we ate like pasta, fresh fish, lamb, chicken, quiche, and apple pie! Imust've gained about 5 lbs. on the trip.

The resort staff were very friendly and helpful. They were very knowledgeable with the local surf conditions and the briefing they gave us before each surf session in explaining the surf spot and the conditions was very helpful to me. After each day of surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, volleyball, etc., I looked forward to sitting in the bar/dining area, drinking an ice cold Vailima beer and talking story with everyone. That was a perfect trip even though I got hurt on the first day. I am looking forward to going there again."
