surfing holiday in May/June & general safety?

Can anyone suggest where is nicest, and likely to get nice surf end May begin June?  Also are some parts more expensive for the budget traveller than in others?  What is the safety like for 2 people travelling alone (couple).
Will be great to hear from someone.
ps. how do the costs compare to somewhere like Bali?

By End of May, the season will be up on the western side of the country like San Juan, La Union or Zambales....

But now, there are no waves... if u want to surf now go to the easter side of the country... try Daet or Baler or even Siarao...

If ull stay in San Juan La Union, fare Manila- La Union costs around 400... accomodation varies from Php500-1000(really depends on where ur staying) per night...

there are a lot of surfers on La Union.. and I think the place is pretty safe and have accomodating locals... but juz dont mess with the locals :)

Not sure Phillipines or Sri Lanka. have read that surf is not consistent in Phillipines May/JUne.  Do you think their will be alot of surfing in siargao and/or Baler.
If not then I will have to visit another time.
ps. No second hand old boards at moment :(
