How are these spots working in August? Do you know how strong is the monsoon? Thanks in advance.

RE: help

well, surf season officially starts september. in august, there is bound to be some swell or freak swell anyway. right now, it is horribly flat everywhere. wait, i'm not a surf expert coz i just started november last year, but from what i know, this is what the season's like:

June: start of Zambales season
July-October: southwest swell in La Union. inconsistent surf, but w typhoon season there is bigger surf and less crowded than the second part of the season.
October-March: northwesterly swell in La Union
March: freak waves if you're lucky (and by freak, I don't mean huge badass ones, but "wow, 2ft waves...surfable for longboarder kooks" (like me :) )
April-June: summer season! very flat and jellofish infested waters...

where do you plan to surf? it may vary... see, surf.com.ph
