Fagaalu in Tutuila is an exposed reef break. Autumn and winter are the optimum times of year for waves. Ideal winds are from the northwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southeast. There is a right hand reef break. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for rips, pollution, coral and sharks.
