Days of Stoke at the 6th MSA Cup

Lokalsoul is really happy and thankful to be part of the 6th MSA Cup held in La Union. It was two days of surfing, meeting fellow Manila surfers and watching city-based surfers compete and bring out the best of each other. Also, ice cream and costume surf competition! The mood was relaxed and the stoke can be felt in the air. Here are some images from those days of stoke.
