The Surf camp

Our Surf Camp Philippines options are located between Cloud 9 and General Luna on Siargao, one of the 7.107 islands that make up the Phillipines.

Siargao is located in the province of Surigao Del Norte; the home of white sand coastlines leading into a continuous run of waves above untouched reefs! Siargao is known as the Surfing Capital of the Philippines, so why go anywhere else? Place yourself in the tropical waters of the Pacific Ocean with some of the friendliest locals known to mankind.

An abundance of marine life awaits you beneath the waters; while above the waters, expect to find the freshest food and many more recreational activities to explore, such as caving, diving, deep-sea fishing, kayaking, jumping waterfalls, etc. Siargao is rapidly growing in its popularity all the while with a reputation that can stand alone! Be ready to experience a true surfing haven for any level. We guarantee to help you catch that first wave, or to find that wave you have only dreamt about conquering!

The most consistent time of the year starts August until March. Even during off season, you are bound to find a break that is looking for a few good surfers to come out and play. The rainy season lasts mid November to early March, but also during this time you can expect a lot of nice weather with temperatures above 25 degree C, so you never need a wet suit to surf these great reef breaks.

Surf school

The surf school offers you one-on-one surfing lessons, and the experienced instructors will have even the complete beginner up and surfing in no time. You will learn to be confident in the waters and how to use the equipment to your own advantage. Along the way you will also develop your own style of surfing which you can bring with you anywhere.

The classes are completely mobile, so depending on conditions and the waves, we will place you in the safest learning environment. By the time you leave here, you will have built a strong surfing foundation for you to bring home with you.

Arrival to the Philippines is usually done through the international airport of Ninoy Aquino in Manila (airport code : MNL) or to Cebu airport (airport code : CEB). Check with your local travel agency to find a good deal from your hometown.

If you are arriving into Manila, fly to Surigao with PalExpress and take the boat to Dapa. If you are arriving into Cebu, take Cebu Pacific Air to Siargao (airport code: IAO). As the direct flight only goes twice a week you can also fly from Cebu to Surigao and take the boat.

We suggest that you try to take the direct flight, but this only goes twice per week (Monday and Friday), so double check this before you book. If you take the boat from Surigao, the latest departure is around noon, and if your flight is delayed, you are not guaranteed to catch the boat on that day, why the direct flight is recommended if possible.

Upon arrival by boat in Dapa, or plane to Siargao airport, a member of the camp staff will pick you up and take you to the camp.
