Learn Surfing in San Juan La Union

While having our familiarization tour sponsored by Thunderbird Resorts in Poro Point, we had a chance to visit on of the surfing schools in San Juan La Union. The last time I visited San Juan was January of this year during Lakbay Norte 2010 where some of the participants in the fam tour enjoyed the Surfing Lessons with Luke Landrigan.

Surfing may not be as popular as Basketball in the Philippines but it is no doubt one of the best pastimes in the country and everyone is interested to learn how to do it. The question is, where do you go to learn Surfing? While there are many options, I recommend the surf resorts in San Juan La Union.

The great thing about San Juan La Union is that the waves are strong and long and they are perfect for beginners because it isn’t likely that they will overpower you with the surge when you are trying to paddle out into them.

The surf camps and schools in San Juan La Union are professional and not priced too high. They are happy to work with beginners or those who want to learn how to rip better but already have the basics down. You can opt for group or one on one lessons and either choice will promise to get you up and surfing on the first day.

The lessons are typically best in the mornings when the swell is strongest and the instructors are fresh. There are also afternoon and midday lessons, but you run the risk of having a tired instructor who wants to get some board time of his own rather than getting you to improve your form.

One of the great things about San Juan La Union is that people are supportive of beginners so you don’t find any of the localism and attitudes that you get in other more professional surf spots when you are floundering around. Plus, after a nice session, there are plenty of places to grab a cold cerveza and enjoy the day or evening with the locals. One thing for sure, surfers love to party as much as they love to surf!
