Week-end crowdFew surfers
- Rips / undertow
- Man-made danger (buoys etc..)
- Private beach
Leave nothing on the beach you want to be there when you get back(lots of curious kids). Better to stay at a local hotel. All surf in walking or boat distance. Probably some of the nicest local people in the country inhabit Pundakit. Many private beach access areas, don't go on private property.
RESPECT everyone and don't ruin it. Keep your attitude where you came from, and spend your money in the local community. This is a peaceful place.
Oh-ya watch out for the dynamite fisherman!!!!
Only a couple local pinoys, and a couple local ex pat white boys surf this spot regular. Most of the surf traffick comes from the Manila surfers during a swell. Really nice group of people. Treat people how you want to be treated.
Honestly this is one of the most beautiful places in the world. You can surf, dive, hike, and do all sorts of stuff in this area.
The people of Pundakit are some of the best in the Philippines. Simple nice people! You can charge some good swell surf on the miles of open beach, or take a short cheap boat trip out to the Capones Islands where it can get really heavy, or around the corner where there is miles of great surf. This place is only a half hour from Olongapo, where there is other fun stuff to do. 20 minutes from Crystal Beach San Narsico as well.
I have never seen localism or hostility in the water, and that is even on some really good days, so if you come visit Pundakit keep it that way. The surf big or small is always fun because of the atmosphere. Respect! Remember a wave is not worth fighting over because there will always be another one.
This is just another great spot in the country of over 7,000 island. There is so much surf in this country. The Philippines is a wonderful place to visit or call home.
No matter where you are in the world if you are a good person things will go usually go better for you then if you are an as#$*^).
This spot is a personal favorite do to the atmosphere.

Oh Pundakit - Oh Pundakit, what a great place, home sweet home! I guess it's no longer one of the best kept down low spots.The mouth of the river is a jewel when the rest of the coast is blown out. The point is super on a good north swell. Better have a differant hobbies in March, April, and May, cause the action could be considered the South China Lake vice the South China Sea. Typhoon season is freakin super!Cheers to Duck, Roy, Chris, and the cool Manila gang that travels down from the city. Looks like the exposure is a comin!
