My new wife and I stayed at the Coconuts Resort and met Neil on the first morning upon his return from a successful surf tour. Quickly the next days early surf was organised with the blessing of my new bride, lucky me. Next morning we scored nice clean waves with four in the water, no doubt Neil's local knowledge,experience and... More

Toured with manoa three times during my stay in Samoa and I wish I could have done it more!! Scored perfect uncrowded waves everytime thanks to Neil. He knows the spots like the back of his hand. As an added bonus we would snorkel after a morning surf then go back to another spot for a lunchtime session, great value... More

Me and my family stayed at Return to Paradise but I utilized Manoa Tours surfing service daily.Neil is a great surf guide. He made sure I had plenty of waves during our surf sessions. He was ready to go surfing any time of the day and was very flexible to adjust his schedule according to any changes in mine. Most... More

Neil is an absolute guru! There's no other way to put it. He'll get you waves given almost any conditions. Really nice guy to deal with, genuinely excited to be on the water with you and forthcoming with tips for each spot and stuff to do on non surf days too. Samoa is the kind of place you really need...

All our pre-flight queries were answered quickly and clearly and Neil looked us up as soon as we arrived on the island to plan our first surf. Samoa is not the... More

With ages from 2 to 70+ It could have been a challenge but he was a great guide with local knowledge and looked after us amazingly well. the gear he provided was excellent and having life jackets and boards for the kids...

Neil got me out on the reef for some amazing waves and the kids and wife out to see sea turtles in the lagoon in crystal clear water. Great times in Samoa, unforgettable.
