Went out with Manoa Tours for three days of surfing in Samoa. Waves were fantastic, Neil was very helpful, friendly, and had all the spots and info dialed down so it was just a short boat ride to an amazing reef. Surfing was epic, nothing but good things to say about MANOA TOURS!

I have visited Samoa 4 times before but this was the 1st time I used Neil/ Manoa Tours . Neil was easily the best guide I have experienced - his local knowledge meant I had good waves each day. I'll only use Manoa Tours from now on. George

Neil is the man! Neil has been living in Samoa for over 15 years and knows the surf conditions to every detail he could probably be a weather man with his knowledge too. Neil also went out of his way on two different occasions to organise surfing accommodation for the three of us who were on a surf trip together.... More

Manoa tours has the island completely wired and couldn't ask for a better surf guide. Has been on the island for 16 years and knows exactly where to be before anyone else, anywhere on the island (Unlike some tours where they only have a boat on one side and you are hand cuffed when you get the wrong wind).
