Surf smiling!

"Surf smiling!" is my trademark greeting or remarks ever since I started surfing 5 years ago. Though I don't get to surf always because of school, I try to surf once a year. Haha!

Our original plan for our last weekend in Mindanao is just to go to places within or nearby CDO. But we thought of Siargao, woohoo!!! Of course, I searched right away and planned. haha! With the help of my brod's dad, everything was perfectly planned. :D

We left CDO around 3:30am, ate breakfast at McDo Butuan City around 7:30 and had brunch in Surigao City 10am at house of our brod Jay Gonzales. If I remember right, he is one of the two ENT specialists in Surigao :D We headed to the port to catch the 12nn RORO to Siargao.

the ferry ride is 4 hours
playing Hangman with my brod kept me awake

When we arrived at Dapa, we went straight to a resto to eat late lunch. I never realized that our whole stay will be full of seafood eating, haha! Yum!

low tide but wait for the waves...

low tide waves?haha!

my friend, Tim

My friend, Sam, told me that Tim-our first ever surfing instructor is in Siargao. I got in touch with him and we coordinated. When I was about to go to Cloud 9, he wasn't answering my calls. Good thing, he was waiting for me at the boardwalk. Though the waves are not "big" because its low tide, I forced him to play just so I can see how surfers play in Siargao. We agreed to just surf early morning the next day. :D
