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...

My mate and I just got back from our first surf trip to Samoa. As newcomers to the area, Manoa Tours were awesome to deal with in every aspect. 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

Whilst you'll see from the reviews Neil specialises in surf trips, we went out on a family trip. 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.

Neil did a fantastic job of finding the best surf spots every day around the south side of the island. He took me to different parts of the coastline to see the variety of waves, only thing that could have been improved was the swell size which obviously we can't control. He even took me to some of the natural... More

Neil from Manoa Tours really showed us great waves on the reef just west of Coconuts on the south coast. He made it a real fun time with his enthusiasm & powerful wave riding. We had 8 out of 9 days with top surf each day. A trip to Boulders was a highlite with sheltered huge waves. Neils experience &... More

From the first email contact with Galen to the last boat trip with Neil, we were looked after with enthusiasm and stoke that was backed up with experience and knowledge.
