Marion Vertuel took these pictures probably decked on the Cloud 9 tower. Finger on the shutter, eyes on the viewfinder. A sunny day, gentle breeze in the air.. and a break full of heavenly barrels. The locals couldn’t be more stoked. It was high time on Cloud 9.

stop. let me just wipe the drool off my mouth… ok let’s go.
now, assume the barrel position
As we speak Marion is still in awesome Siargao. And with the swell forecast fixated on the Pacific side of the Philippines, pretty sure local surfers are getting barreled out of their minds. If there’s any foreign surfer reading this post, please go pack your bags now. You have got to reach this heaven.
