YOU NEED A LONG BOARD. THEY COST MORE THAN A REGULAR BOARD RANGING FROM 900 USD TO 1600 USD DEPENDING ON THE BRAND AND THE SHAPER OF THE BOARD.

Just a suggestion... for a beginner, try renting before buying. If you buy 1 right away, (I don't know if they have demos there in the Philippines) and you don't happen to like it... you're stuck with it. For a beginner I suggest trying to learn on at least a 9'0", then you progress from there. Surf the net on how to learn, what kind of boards you would want, and most of all surfing etiquette.
SURFS UP !!!

For beginners, I found through research that it's best to use longboards or what they call malibu/mal boards. And if you found the best one for you, there are those who actually sell secondhand boards :)

buying a board in the philippines might be a little iffy.. waves are not consistent unless it's surigao.. so far it seems like there's no other spots in the luzon regions. atleast not posted Im sure it's well kept secret.
