Can some one give me some good advise on it or other places. I would prefer to go to some place that is not crowded. I would like some activities to do as I am planning on staying for awhile to learn to surf. Any advise would be really apreciatted thanks.

hey brad, I would advise you to go to baler, long stretch of beach breaks a couple o' reefs, surf shops are available for board rentals, cheap and decent lodging not too mention the locals are really friendly.

yeah man theres a lot of activities and stuff's to do besides surfing baler is well preserved in nature so pwede kang mag hike/trekking, sight seeing, touring,etc. may night life din dun. ganja is also available just go to the right person (tata pons), but be carefull its not like its legal there or anywhere else. Im sure mag eenjoy ka dito kap maganda pa ang alon at season ngayon. aloha!
