OVERVIEW

SURFING
The Philippines has more than the usual potential to become one of the best surfing destinations in the world, even though for a long time its spectacular, great wayves have been unknown. Recently discovered, the country can pride itself as one of the most exciting surfing destinations in the world today.

Go wild over waves such as Cloud 9 and Tuason Point in Siargao, Majestics in Catanduanes, and Cemento in Baler, Aurora, a variety of beach breaks that attract thrill-seeking international surfers and locals alike now highly interested in learning a lot more on this high-flying, wave-blasting sport.

The excellent time to enjoy world-class waves of up to 15 feet is between July-November when the winds bring wallops from 12-30 knots amid clear skies and low humidity. This is when the surfing scene truly booms and you'll find more than the usual national circuit of locals already offering contests. So grab that surfboard and ride our waves!

WINDSURFING
The Philippines is not just a good venue for premium windsurfing it is THE venue. From the moment the northeast monsoon, locally known as the "amihan" blows, it brings with it the bluest skies and steady drifts that create white caps on the crystal clear waters.

International windsurfers dream of gliding along the breaktaking coastlines that make up the top windsurfing venues in the country today. Local windsurfers are transforming the sport into a Filipino one. At the center of all this is the Manila-based Caliraya Windsurfing Fleet, an extremely tight-knit group of friendly and hospitable members, and the Anilao group, formed around the Olympic training squad.

WHITE-WATER ACTION
The Philippines, once believed by many to have low white-water potential, in reality has more than the usual river runs due to the geography of the majestic mountains lying close to the ocean that create numerous watercourses plunging right into the sea.

White-water activity has now become the country's newest adventure as more and more paddlers continue to seek out and explore the thrilling, gushing rapids of Philippine rivers. It is a wholesome adventure for explorers and outdoor enthusiasts alike - promising to provide more than the usual wild over water fun and excitement while appreciating the spectular beauty of the nature-lined courses.

SEA KAYAKING
With more than the usual bodies of water, more than the usual swamps and rivers, more than the usual oceans and seas, the Philippines has become the perfect setting for sea kayaking. The sport is new here but getting more popular because there are so many prime locations still waiting to be explored from the swamps of Bohol, the rough ocean of Northern Luzon, the secret lagoons of magical Siargao, and El Nido, Palawan. There are just so many magnificent stretches of stunning and endless coastlines in the Philippines to be negotiated.
