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!
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.
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.
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.
