Bit of an epic, as Siargao Island isn't realy near anywhere, and once there you've gotta find the break. Best go with someone who knows it.

The wave is a powerful reef break, pitching over shallow live coral. Generaly its a right, although as with many reefs it pitches both ways, with the left being shorter and equally hollow. When Cloud Nine gets crowded head down to Jacking Horses (300m paddle)
Hollow, Powerful and Superfast - as it sucks back off the coral grab your courage with both hands and give it your best. If you don't hesitate you'll get the wave of your life. This wave breaks boards and bones - you have been warned.

Amongst the top reef breaks in the world, behind Teahoppo, Backdoor and Pipeline... but not far behind!

Hey Mike - Hey Mike, i've been to 101 last January with my girlfriend, thx again for everything. Banjing and the other staff were the best. We'd love to come again this year, but is February ok? Because January was so windy and rainy, what do you think about this month?

Aussie - im coming to Philippines in February but am staying with some friends in bohol. Im hoping to get to siargao for a day or two try and get cloud nine. Is there much swell through this season at cloud nine, or can you recommend other surf spots which turn on during this time?

best time @ cloud 9 - hello anonymus,there is no "best time "for cloud 9 the swell is best dec - mar but the wind and rain are a factor at this time sep and oct are really good if there is swell but the contest is on at this time also but there are plenty of other quality breaks in the area as well jun - aug are usually small but if u do get a swell the conditions are perfect check www.magicseaweed.com and look at their seasonal and historic data for some more info on the waves
yes the locals are as friendly as the rest of the philippines i am married to a cloud 9 local and we own www.ocean101cloud9.com resort and have a great understanding with all the locals
