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.

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.
