When I was in the Philippines, I’ve seen a show that featured Siargao Island. This island is actually famous for it’s surfing waves. The ‘Cloud 9’, is a thick wave with hollow tubes.
According to Wiki,
The wave was discovered by travelling surfers in the late 1980s. It was named and made famous by American photographer John S. Callahan, who published the first major feature on Siargao Island in the United States- based magazine in March 1993, and hundreds of his photos in many other books and magazines since his first visit in 1992. Callahan has put the island on the international map and has drawn thousands of surfers and tourists to Siargao.
Well that’s a short history of Philippine’s famous Siargao. So, if you love to surf, better get your surf clothing ready and head on to Siargao, Philippines.
