I've been to club manila east before and it's ok :) I forgot the name of our instructor but yeah, he's also an aussie.
Daryl: Where is this place that's near in manila where we can surf? Like the exact location? Thanks.

Why all the hate, guys?
And wtf do you care about taxes? When you buy and sell boards and gear from each other, do YOU pay the appropriate income/ sales taxes/VAT?
Can't we all just get along here?

Ian, it is at real, quezon. There are waves for all levels of surfing. Paolo and i are finding new spots in the area all the time. It is totally unchartered. Only 2 and a half hours from Ortigas.
Brian, Thanks for the good vibes.

I've read through the posts but still I'm not sure. If I'm coming to Manila around June 12th and looking for a good beach for decent surfing where should I go?
I won't have my own board, I'm a relative beginner, and just want clean, small waves to keep learning on. I've been in Sayulita, Mexico and Camburi, Brazil the last few months on 4-5 foot waves, mostly beach breaks.
I'm happy to fly from Manila if there is somewhere to fly that is worth the trip.
Anyone have suggestions?

i'm not that rich kid living manila, so i can say the fee in PSA for two hours is expensive compare to a surf trip in Zambales or La union. Yha its way near at Manila but my pocket is not that wide. By the way, there are wave pools in Bulacan that are also opening. And heard that they are competing whose gonna be the biggest wave pool in the country.

It's not possible to learn surfing in one day in a pool. I don't think paying that much for a lesson that the Philippine Surf Academy is charging is worth it. What you learn in the pool may not necessarily be what you face in the ocean and it will definitely cause me to be out of money really fast. La Union locals and Zambales locals would probably do a better job without the expensive fee and it's in a real beach with real waves.
But if the instructor is female and really hot, then maybe it might be worth it.

Well Dom, you sound like one of those guys that wants to be into surfing for the wrong reason. Our academy is not restricted to the wave pool, we are very much mobile and most of our students accompany us to the beach. We don't go to the mainstream popular surf places. We take some of our repeat students to places where surf has only just been discovered, and yes they do pay more than the lessons that are available elsewhere.
