first time beginner going to Manila

Hey Guys  ... Hows it goin!?

Yeah, I'm from Canada and goin' to Manila in the first week of June. I was wondering what are some good spots where I can get beginner lessons?

My friends been stoked about his first time surfing and ever since he told me about it i've been itching to try it myself =)



RE: first time beginner going to Manila

try san juan, la union, around 5-6 hrs away from manila...season starts july i guess, good for beginners, a lot of instructors and boards for rent. Happy surfing! email me, shadzki_666@yahoo.com



RE: first time beginner going to Manila

hi.. me too.. I want to surf but don't knwo which surf spot is best for beginners like me.. And the budget? for renting the board, the instructor? Is there something like a room or house for rent where we could possible stay.. thanks



RE: first time beginner going to Manila

la union's great for beginners. try brian's surf camp. room, board and other stuff for rent. 350 pesos for long boards per hour if im not mistaken. oh, and they have teachers too. you gotta check the waves before goin there though. sometimes it's flat.



RE: first time beginner going to Manila

yup la union is cool! take Partas from either cubao or pasay. tell the conductor to drop you of in san juan la union. from there beach is a mere 2-minute walk.

rooms which are good for 2-3 is at 800. rooms good for 4-5 is at 1200.

long boards 350 / hr. (thats right) and short are i think 250 or 300.

luke landrigan is the manager of surf camp and he can hook you up with some instructor. usually costs 400/hr including the board.

then at night take your instructors for a drink or 2 over a surf chat!
