… and I don’t mean the internet, silly.
Surfing, as well know, is that sport where you get to ride the waves using a surfboard or some other equipment.
You ask avid surfers like movie star Jericho Rosales, and he’ll probably name the following places as the Philippines’ best places for surfing:
Lanuza, Surigao del Sur – one of the best-kept secret surfing places. Went here in 2004, where I gave up on its ‘remoteness.’ It was still a good six hours or so by land from the Butuan airport! Here’s my archived article in the Manila Bulletin and here. However, there should be no harm going here if you’re seriously into the sport!
Siargao, Surigao del Norte – Undoubtedly the Philippines’ premier surfing destination. “The waves curl like a bowl, so you ride inside it.”
Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte
