Siargao Surfing: The Famous Cloud 9 Surf Break

Surfing Cloud9

When you think of surfing in Asia, Indonesia (Bali in particular) probably comes to mind first. But one of the best surf spots lies on the island of Siargao in The Philippines.

It's signature break is called Cloud9. This right-breaking reef wave provides surfers with excellent surf opportunities and has a reputation for thick, hollow tubes.

Surf competitions are being held there twice a year. To provide viewers with a good vantage point to watch the action, a long walkway has been built that leads to a three level viewing deck.

On my last visit to the island, I spent a few hours taking pictures with my newly bought camera.

So for all the surfers out there who are considering a visit to Siargao island, this is what the surfing at Cloud9 looks like!

Hey James, thanks for stopping by. Would love to check out your city sometime, I've heard about it. I believe there is a ferry that connects Surigao to Siargao.
