Faganeanea in Tutuila is an exposed reef and point break that has inconsistent surf. The optimum time of year for waves is autumn. Works best in offshore winds from the northwest. Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the south. A reef breaks left and there is a left hand point break too. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Take care of coral.
