i am not hater. i am only giving my opinon on this topic "surf in or manila". i also heard testimonials about surfing real and psa. i think PSA crews also knew the downside of their surf skul, and hopefully they are working to have a cheap and long time surf experiences in their pool for all surfer levels.

Daryl, yes you did offer the girl a free lesson but you were doing that in order to compensate the girl for her experience with shady surf instructors. It was noble of you. But that’s not what I was referring to. My question was simply asking whether you decide your prices based on your customer’s status. On the other hand, you take it that I put you out to be in the same category as Tim. That is not my intention. Unless you want to avoid the question, then I can only assume that you are doing the same thing. By now, everyone knows about the topic. But my question has not been answered on whether you price everyone equally or not. I don’t need your self justification or self promotion, just a simple yes or no reply. Can you do that?

Dom,
go to my post dated June 15. Your question was answered there. I was hoping the matter was closed then and told you not to expect another reply. Now for the last time, I consider this matter closed. Bye

I am a beginner when it comes to surfing, my mga nkasabay ako once na mga beginners dni and they say they started sa wavepool (CME) but they say that its a lot different when it comes to the ocean. They find it hard to catch waves in the ocean they say, but in the wave pool they were able to catch and ride many waves. For me it is better to learn surfing in the ocean compared to the wave pool.. you'll just waste a lot of money because it's too expensive, I have nothing against it but c'mon man admit it! its too expensive compared to go to a spot near manila say zambales or la union and spend your money there, nkapag surf ka na nkapag travel ka pa.. wavepool is just for busy people in manila who wants to try surfing but i don't recommend it for thos who really wants to pursue this hobby.

inch,
That was a fantastic reply. It is expensive, but to generate the waves is expensive also. And you are right about the busy people thing too. But to practice catching waves, surfing and exercise, the pool is a great tool. It is also great for people that are intimidated of the ocean. After a session at the pool, there is a higher chance they may try the ocean. Anyway inch, i thought your post was so much more constructive than other peoples posts.
