Moving to Makati

« on: August 29 2006 16:08:00 »

Hi, I am a native Panamanian girl who'll be moving to Makati in about 2 months.  I am begining to surf, and would like to know which beaches are good for surfing near Makati.  I've found a few names, but can't really figure out how close or far they are from where I'll be living.

Also, and since I don't know anyone there, I would like to make new friends ;-)

Thanks for  your replies

hi there,

head up north in crystal beach, san narciso zambales or san antonio, pundakit. its a 4 hrs ride from manila. and go further north, there's san juan la union. a prime surfspot for a beginner. la union is 6 to 7hrs ride from manila. also, try the waves in aurora, baler. its a 7 to 8hrs ride from where you'll be (in makati).

bringing your own boards? if not.. board rentals are also available in those spots.

take it easy now...
happy surfing:)

Hi Lizy,
The nearest beaches known to be suitable for beginner to intermediate surfing are in Zambales and Quezon. Both are 3-4 hours drive from Makati.

I'm also starting to learn to surf and have been going to Zambales for the past 2 weekends, and will be going again this weekend with Stonemoney surf coach Joe Villatora.

There are probably lots of other breaks that haven't been discovered yet, but these two are the ones that I know of.

Feel free to hit me up on my email -- I live in Makati too.

Hey there you guys,

Thanks a lot for the tips and spots, I will be traveling mid october to Makati

I just got back from Santa Catalina, which is a surf spot in Panama, the name of the beach is Estero, in the case you ever consider visiting Panama.  Is the perfect spot for beginers, but there is also a point break that all pros fall in love with.

I'll keep in touch with you guys anyone else that replies to this post ;-)
