I spent 2 months in Samoa from March to May 2015 for volunteer work. I also was looking for an opportunity to surf but not on my own. As I did not know any of the surf locations I needed someone with local knowledge. Because I was not a typical visitor looking to stay in a resort, surf camp or... More

Had a blast surfing Samoa with Neil. I had been emailing Manoa Tours for a couple of months prior to going to Samoa. Galen and Neil were both awesome with all my questions leading into the trip .We deliberately stayed at coconuts knowing that Manoa Tours operated out of there, it couldn't have been any easier. I was stoked to... More

We were recommended by Jack and Carol at Lupe Sina Treesort to speak with Neil if we were interested in either surfing or a day trip. Neil is a great operator. Super knowledgeable, easy going, and great fun to hang out with. I surfed for two sessions with Neil, and my partner and I went for an afternoon trip snorkelling... More

We were advised by a surfer to stay at Coconuts and to use Manoa Tours - what great advice that turned out to be! Neil had us up at 0600 but it was worth it - sun rise, clean waves and no one else around. Our family also did a snorkel trip - a great morning at the black sand... More

I had the pleasure to surf with Neil on 4 consecutive days as well as a snorkel, he is one of the nicest guys I've ever met. If/when I come back to Samoa I will definitely call up Neil again. Thank you once again!

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
