Explosions in the Surf: Jeff Dela Torre

2011 was a great year for Philippine competitive surfing. We’ve seen standout performances from various National competitions from Cabugao to Siargao. Although we haven’t pretty much covered the entire surface of profiling our very own local surfers, there is one guy who’s basically a standout at surf contests. If he ain’t winning 1st, his name is sure to pop out across places. Man if you’ve been surfing a lot, or if you regularly read this website, you probably know him. He is Jefferson Dela Torre – one of the most competitive, consistent and electrifying Filipino surfers.

Luckily for us Eds Cervantes made a video of Jeff getting barreled and ripping full cut backs out there at the ever famous Cloud 9. Thanks Eds. Of course in true LokalSoul fashion, we gots to share this with you ‘coz after all this is the new year – we gotta set it off with some fireworks.

Alohaboardsports rider Jeff, everyone’s ‘pake’, hails from Baler but now mostly duties in La Union. He is a loving partner to Daisy Valdez of LU.  If you’ve been surfing a lot, or if you regularly read this website, you probably know her. If not, well, Daisy is simply one of the best Filipina surfers – of all time. But that needs a different blog post altogether.

First blog post of 2012 and what better way to start it by watching great Philippine surfing. Yeah. And we do have a full year ahead of us. So just standby folks, LokalSoul has great things to come.
