surf spot close to Manila

« on: January 03 2012 08:01:00 »

I'll be in Manila this Saturday 7th Jan for approx four weeks (business). If I can get away for a few days, what is the nearest/easiest to get to surf break for a beginner/intermediate? Can I drive/bus/private taxi - somewhere in 3 or 4 hours or is this not practical.

If I stayed on for a week after my work and therefore had more time to travel - where would be a good place to head for surf and a laidback experience (not a big tourist trap for concrete hotels everywhere).

Many thanks for all help in advance!
