You can rent a board once you are on Siargoa Island. With the price of traveling with a board nowadays, I alwasy recommend renting where you can. I know there is also a way to get to paradise by vehicle, but I do not know it well enough to give directions on here. Paradise and Daku Island are very close to eachother so surf either break depending on the wind direction.
I didn't get to surf this place in the peak season so I honestly don't know how good this place can get. I do know the reef is shallow on a lower tide such that you won't even be able to duck dive the wave. Booties are a must here and it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to have some gloves as you will be ditching your board and grabbing reef on many occasions. The wave looks like it has potential on a good swell and can get very hollow.

Paradise or G1? - this spot is really called G1, Andreas (a non-surfer) from Patricks named it Paradise attempting to further his claim for everything on the island.
the wave is a great little a-frame peak with easy barrels that only breaks when the Cloud Nine area is out of control, think a minimum of 4 meters of swell. it can be reached easily by road, the locals will show you the way.
Jonothan is a cool guy as are all the locals here, if your lucky they might even call you into a wave or 2.
if you are reading this jonothan, i got the photos developed and have on of you slotted in the barrel. will scan and email to you soon.

First To Comment - I surfed this spot in January with a bunch of locals. Respect them and they will respect you. This place is not for beginners because the reef is shallow and sharp. If you go to the Island, look for Jonathan. He is a great boat captain. Him another Captain drove my wife and me back to Surigao. a 5 hour trip, during a typhoon. They had to drive that back and in the dark, with no compass or radio. Definitely use this guy on your boat trips.
