My wife & I have just recently returned from a 1 week break on the South Coast of Samoa. I was recommended Manoa Tours from an Aussie living in Samoa & what a lucky break that was! It was easy to recognise Neil's extensive & excellent knowledge of the breaks throughout Samoa & he knows exactly which breaks to surf in particular conditions with regard to tide, swell direction, wind etc. I have been on numerous guided surf trips in the past & it quickly became obvious to me that Neil didn't want to waste client's time looking around for waves, rather he would take us to the best spots straight away knowing full well what the conditions & wave quality was going to be like. He was keen to ensure we arrived at particular areas at exactly the right time in order to avoid any possible crowds & it was refreshing to see he still has a tonne of stoke (perhaps even grommet levels!!) as he was always genuinely excited for us when we pulled up to some quality waves. To top it off Neil is a really top bloke & genuinely nice guy & it was great to watch him in the water as the dude tears the proverbial out of it! Thanks again Neil for an awesome trip, I figure any surf trip where you get a 3 hour uncrowded sessions before breakfast is a sign of a good trip. Neil was also helpful in suggesting other attractions on the island along with some great "insider" knowledge on some out of the way spots for swimming, exploring etc. (Manoa also run snorkelling & hiking trips) I highly recommend Neil & Manoa Tours to anyone going over to Samoa as it was blatantly obvious that Neil wanted people to get the best out of their stay with minimum time wastage. Thanks again a bucketload, Neil, hopefully we'll be back again for more good times & sick waves. Cheers brah!!!
