kapag alam mo na ang basics, pede na yun...kaya lang may nagtuturo sayo para may kasama ka paglaro at para na rin malaman mo kung anong mali or tama sa ginagawa mo kapag naglalaro ka...ethics ng surfing importante tol, dami nadidisgrasya dahil sa agawan ng alon kapag crowded, if not you, yung board mo ang yari...di mo rin alam kung kelan crowded, bigla na lang nagsusulputan mga adik sa alon eh hahaha ok ang zambales, dami options, meron magsaysay, pundakit and crystal...mas madali matuto kung tlagang praktis galore tol, masarap feeling kapag nakikita mo improvement mo kahit pakonti-konti! sana nga dumami pa surfers sa pinas, asteg yun! gudlak tol!

Shad, thanks for the info on surfboard cost mas mura pala diyan, I will visit his shop for sure P15K is just round about $350.00 that's cheap.
Your right, Shad, learning how to surf doesnt happen overnight, the more that your out there, the better, rules of engagement and right of way is also important. Stretching and exercise helps to keep your fit, after you'll being doing lotz of bending.
Reading the break or surf is important, dont wanna be stuck in the current or against it coz you'll be paddling for yonks

I got an email from Patrick's on the beach at Siargao. They said that there are some beginners wave there, so there you go south is not bad at all. But I think I will have to check out Lanusa, I saw their website and it's not as intimidating. Anyway! last week in Sydney, been surfing for 3 days in a row now, called in sick on Friday just to surf, then Saturday and this morning, I went to Manly Beach, surf is up. It's been a good surfing weekend by next weekend I'll be in Philippines for a holiday. Hope to bump in to any of you, while Im there, I'll be in Zambales Crystal Beach, Lanusa Surf and Siargao. See you all!
