Hey Shadski, I finally tried Lanuza Surf here is Surigao del Norte, I was just by myself the break is really good for beginners up to intermediate level, it's a sand bar.
Too easy I was a bit disappointed as there was no power on the break. The water temp was 29 degrees so it was a good relaxation compare to Sydney.
I'll be in Siargao tomorrow, I will try to upload some pic on my surigao del norte and del sur experience, to let everyone know in the next 48 hours.
To all the people posting on this site, good luck and see you on the line up, hope to bump in to you you soon.
Xion By the way Im from Sydney

Just came back from GL, the place is awesome, I've been to atleast 5 different surf spot, stimpy, pacifico, daku island, cloud 9 and quicksilver... they say there is more but only managed to stay on the break that I mentioned.
I would strongly recommend quicksilver for beginners to intermediate, it's on the left hand side of cloud 9 not far from the channel.
Im now heading to Crystal beach Zambales.
At Lanuza you can email the mayor Gerri Irazari but I went to Doktoy sand bar beach resort ask for the town captain, her Name is Mrs Frias, she's really helpful.
I'll post more in manila, I have to catch my flight.

Hey John, let me know where you wanna go and I'll set you up, the time that you mentioned are not a good time but the surf would be for begginer's to intermediate level, which is good if your at it.
Where are you from?... Im from Sydney, well filipino living in OZ!
Let me know mate, and I'll help you out to avoid the rip off!
Till I hear from you soon, mate!
