Spent the Holy Week in Baler and it was an incredible weekend. What’s more awesome is we got to spend it with the guys and girls of the Choco Banana Crew. And thanks to our friend Dindi here is a video of that weekend which is one of the best surf trips we had so far this year. You can never NOT get stoked in Baler. Surf x skate, in the sun and in the shade.
Single and Unattached is the first single fin longboard contest in the Philippines. This event highlights for the very first time the traditional, classic style of longboarding in a country where performance surfing takes center stage. Surfers from all over the nation as well as the globe gathered in Monaliza Point, San Juan, La Union with their heavy single fin logs, leashes unattached, to show off some fancy footwork, joint breaking drop knees, and nasal tip time.
Eventhough the waves that weekend weren’t really the glassy little peelers we’d expected, it was such a fun, laid-back contest filled with smiles, washed up boards, friends running after their friend’s washed up boards, shakas, high fives, love and positive vibrations.
Hopefully, this event makes more Filipinos,young and old, fall in love with this alternaitve side of surfing and appreciate the very basics of this beautiful art form.
