Summer = the beach. No explanation needed. Aside from just swimming and getting a good tan, the beach is great for all sorts of water sports, including surfing. If you want to learn how to ride the waves, here are six cool surf spots around the Philippines that I’ve personally been to.
1) Bagasbas, Camarines Norte
In recent years, Bagasbas Beach in Daet, Camarines Norte has risen in popularity as a surfing and kiteboarding spot. Several summer surfing festivals and clinics have been held here and local surfers recommend Bagasbas beach for beginners who want to learn how to surf.
The 4th Bagasbas Summer Surf Festival will be held in Bagasbas Beach, Daet, Camarines Norte next weekend from April 15-17, 2011, so I’m reposting an article I wrote on Camarines Norte for Sunday Inquirer Magazine in case anyone is interested in sightseeing afterwards. For some reason, the print version doesn’t carry my byline . The full article is also available online here.
