Surfing Shipwrecks in Aunuu (when our fieldwork was done)


We took the alia ferry to Aunuu today to catch some fun waves! Sorry I didn’t get any photos of the waves, I was too busy surfing! Aunuu is a small island off of the larger American Samoan island of Tutuila. There is a small village there. Many of the residents commute to the larger island using the alia ferries in order to go to work daily. We met the IT specialist for American Samoa Community College, Dawn, in the lineup. He lives on the island with his family and commutes to the college for work every morning. Not a bad life being an IT specialist here in Samoa (or a field researcher!).
