Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
It's commonly thought that surfing in the Philippines started in 1979 when Francis-Ford Coppola shot Apocalypse Now in Baler, Aurora province and left a couple of boards behind for the local Pinoys. However, it's more likely that US airmen have been surfing Mona Liza Point in La Union since the early ?70s. Relying mainly on NE monsoon wind-driven waves, the focus of east coast surfing in the South China Sea has shifted further north around a trendy surf resort called Badoc Island. Badoc is a true surf paradise with four quality uncrowded reefbreaks nearby and a reliable beachbreak. Being an exclusive private property, it might not appeal to those who believe in public access to the beach.
