Surf in or near Manila« on: June 03 2008 20:06:00 »
Just want to let you all know there is surf in Manila. Its mainly for the beginner to novice level. But there is a new venue on its way (3 months), that even experienced surfers will be stoked with. Also there is a good beginner to novice wave just 2-3 hours from Manila that offers waves all the time. Ive been there 7 times teaching my girlfriend and havn't been let down once. There is also a great waterfall there that you can jump off. All done in a day, what more can you ask for.

what daryll is saying is true. there's a wave pool in cainta, rizal where you can surf. its really for one who hasn't rode a surfboard even once. if you already surf, you won't find it interesting. the ride is 1-2 meters long. the break that's 2-3-hour-away is in infanta and real, quezon. yes, you finish everything in one day (can't stay overnight) because there are no accommodations since its not yet developed. and there are NPA rebels.

Hey swimming pool, you sound like a full ripper. Hope you enjoy your local spots.

Hey patrick, thanks for backing up my statement. But unfortunately, you were wrong in everything you said. The wave pool I'm talking about is in club manila east, which is in Taytay - not in Cainta. And the waves there are good for beginners and novices, also good to get wet - even if you are a good surfer. Why don't you come and try it and find out for yourself, because its not possible that you've been there before... because you didn't know the area, and the waves go a lot longer than 1 or 2 meters. Another thing, its not Infanta - the place I'm talking about is actually south of Real. So again, you're wrong. But thanks again for your opening statement.

Hey ace, what a cool name? Anyway, hope you enjoy yourself. I'm not in it for the money and i'm sure we will meet 1 day. I'm lookn forward to it. All you guys should think before you make comments, because so far you are critisising something you all have no idea about.

i surfed infanta and real, quezon long before you did, daryll. there are reasons why manila surfers don't surf there (even if its only 2-3 hours away) and its not because we don't know it. i have also surfed in taytay wave-pool before you got exclusive right to bring in boards and students there. i may be wrong about the town - taytay, not cainta - but i'm not wrong about the lenght of the ride. neither am i wrong that there are no accomodations in infanta and real, quezon. and there are npa's there. can you not imagine the risks bringing students to npa infested towns with a caucasian instructor?
