 Información adicional

A south-facing break fairly immune to all but the most southerly of Trade Winds. Very consistent usually offering something of interest even if the rest of Tutuila is totally flat and/or blown-out.

Fast, steep, jacking peak so don’t hesitate on take-off. Mostly a left but on smaller days an occasional right can be had. Coral encrusted lava shelf is a ‘swell magnet’ that tends to pick up and amplify even the slightest hint of swell. When conditions are right, a thick, powerful, wave peeling off perfectly for a good 50 yards. However, depending on swell size and direction (a strong west-southwest is especially bad), it can be extremely treacherous just to get in and out of the water let alone surf there. Just in front of the take-off zone a row of jagged, toothy rocks awaits anyone unlucky enough to get caught inside, and huge sets can completely close out the channel, crashing onto the rocks lining the shore. When BIG (over 6’) a strong rip runs through the channel. It is utterly futile to paddle against this rip and the only way in is a rock-dodging-heart-stopping-fin-busting ride all the way to shore. Getting caught in the wrong place at the wrong time here is certain disaster, so study conditions carefully (how to get in and out of the water, big scary clean-up sets that close out the channel, etc.) before committing yourself.

Ambiente

Very scenic and majestic area. Rugged volcanic cliffs. Great for photos. To the east of break is a natural 'slip and slide'. Large flat rock covered with algae good for sliding across while standing (hence the name Sliding Rock). Small sandy beach and shallow lagoon in front of break. Nice hang-out spot but also lots of trash and local thieves who will go through your stuff in search of money while you are out surfing, so be careful.

Sliding Rock
By Experience Pipeline

spooky place - Sliding Rock is a really dangerous wave - if you blow your wave, just in front of the bowl is toothy coral that juts up clear out of the water angling out at you. Super gnarly. But the barrel is amazing - like mini Chopes. No shit. Go and check it ou

good riddance amsam - surfing tutuila can be quite rewarding, but requires a good attitude and a willingness to explore...amsam is just is all sour grapes...i won't give away any spots (you can find them anyway by driving around or with good maps), but i had a good amount of epic days out here besides sliding rock and coral heads...it's not the best place to holiday for a week, but if you can give it around a month you will be stoked...in fact, i had one friend come in for three days and he got to surf mini-chopes (a place on the east side, not coral heads) at DOH for two days straight...thus, don't come to surf specific spots--many spots are fickle, but considering the variety of breaks, its not a problem because something is always working!!!yes the reef is super-shallow but it is def. negotiable at most spots...if you are a crybaby like amsam, don't come...if you are down to explore and get ridiculous barrels with no one out, then you are welcome...

Surfed it for 2 years - Yeah shallow but fun, powerful at times, I learned the take off spot from one of the 6 or 7 locals at the time. Often I surfed it alone. What about the narrow channel to get in. I rarely saw anyone there. I have surfed this spot more than 50 + times. There are some grinding waves in Samoa. I have many scars to prove it.
