wow philippines - the waves in the philippines are amazing! people are friendly. i guess it's really more than the usual! one of the best in the world. i think more tourists should visit the philippines.(if not only for the threats) but over-all, i'm back here in the US, safe and sound with some of the best memories.
no title - Hey surftonga,You are very rude! If you dont wana surf in the philippines then shut up. The locals would be more than happy NOT sharing our breaks with people like you!
Love it or hate it - I can't wait to go back,the people are so friendly and as for surf i got my share,see ya's next year.
So much negativity guys. - You just have to accept the Philippines for what it is. Are you saying that all the things like kidnappings, killings robberies etc dont happen in Indo or for that matter any other place in the world. The surfs inconsistant thats true. All those nasty things happen thats also true. The reality of it is that a combination of all these things help to keep the crowds down. Lets look at the positives you have less chance of getting malaria or Dengue fever. You are less likely to be lost at sea in a leaky boat. You are more likely to be able to find someone who speaks English while travelling through the country side. You wont get classic waves day after day but you will get classic waves from time to time. Fortunately for some of us that have done a lot of surfing and travelling through the Philippines there is only a handful of spots that are known.There are a couple of places in the country that when they are firing are the equal to any surf break in the world. Isn't it better to surf places that are not packed out with the worlds best surfers. Or do you need the ego thing to say "hey I surfed 10' Ulus and such and such were in the water with us. I only got 3 waves each session but man it was pumping."Those of you knocking the place obviously havent spent a great deal of time there. Remember you could spend 3 months in Cronulla and go away saying the Island etc are all hoaxes if your there at the wrong time of the year.If you dont like the Philippines then thats up to you but there is no need to put the joint down if you havent done the time there.Cheers

Reply to Heat Seeker - You don't have a clue what you are talking about. Many of us live here and so don't tend to bugger off to Indonesia where there is definatly good surf.If we listened to twats like you we would shag and drink beer and never surf - what a way to live our lives. Not time go somewhere else as the breaks don't need assholes with your attitude...
