Being a general non-tipper what's a fair tip for a boat man/guide in Fiji?

Out to the best, least crowded waves around. How about that.

If he does a good job and you're happy with your experience, anywhere from 10 to 20 % of the bill is what I'd be thinking.
Unless, of course, the bill is so much that the tip is already factored in.

Sounds like I might need to buy more Fijian dollars.

I suspect they would prefer money.
