An uncrowded surfing paradise
With over 15 breaks situated around the small town of General Luna in Siargao, the Surf Camp is set up for all abilities. Whether you're dipping your toes into the world of surfing and looking to master the basics, or you're an intermediate surfer looking to escape to crystal clear waters and push your surfing to the next level, Siargao is the surf destination for you! Our Philippines surf adventures will give you the chance to experience life in the surf capital of the Philippines and all this surfing paradise has to offer.
Experience the country's magical zen, serene beauty, friendly people and immaculate waves suitable for all levels of surfer.
A strong essence of surf culture lies in Siargao following its discovery by a few surf pioneers and photographers in the early 80s. The infamous heavy barrelling right hander known as Cloud 9 put Siargao firmly on the global map after it was named and photographed by John Callahan in 1992. Callahan named the spot after the local "Cloud 9" no-melt chocolate bar that they used to buy in General Luna to fuel their surfs. Ever since, a plethora of waves have been discovered and there seems to be no slowing down on new discoveries...
Paddling out for a sunrise session and finding only you and your friends on a peak is a daily occurance. With less competition in the water and no hostility of drop ins, it lets you relax in the water and focus your mind on your surf.
Whether you're your joining us for the 2-Week Camp, or the 3-Week 'Coast to Coast', we have hand picked some incredible accommodation for your stay.
General Luna is the funky little town where we base ourselves for the 2-Week Camp, as well as the first 2-Weeks of the 'Coast to Coast' trip, and is home to a seriously chill vibe, which we're sure you'll grow to love. During the days you're free to walk the empty beaches, embrace a hammock and good book, or jump on a bike and check out the market and its various foody delights (the coconut bread is a must). We want you to embrace all this island has to offer so rest assured we'll be taking you on a few fun excursions both on land and sea throughout the trip.
Harana Surf Resort literally means "To Be Serenaded" and this beautifully new wooden structure ties together a cool, unique, young atmosphere where riders truly experience the locale’s serenity, openness and beauty.
Pacifico is where we spend Week 3 of the 'Coast to Coast' adventure, tucked away in the North of Siargao Island with a stretching white sand beach - the quaint, authentic bay of Pacifico first became well known among surfers on the quest for uncharted territory. They found in Pacifico the famous "Big Waves" they were looking for, with the surf break in our front yard coming to be known affectionately as "Big Wish".
Pacifico Beach Resort is our home for the week, located between the natural landscape of the coconut plantation and the rocky cliff. With no neighbour in sight, it's is the perfect place to watch the waves roll in and the sunrise from your terrace. A five minute stroll along the beach will have you arrive in the local barangay (village), the heart and soul of Pacifico, with the local BBQ and a sea of smiling faces and curious children.
