Philippines Reef Break Surf Spots
Reef Break Surf Spots
In the Philippines you will find enough waves for advanced surfers, like the most prominent surf spot Cloud 9 on the island Siargao. But there are definitely enough beginner and intermediate spots as well and you can surf in almost every part of the Philippines. You will find a big mix of reef and beach breaks. Many beach breaks can be found in Baler, Zambales and La Union.
Reef Breaks have the capacity to produce consistent waves, flawlessly rolling in one after another. The coral reef or rocky bottom is where the wave breaks. Since the bottom of a reef break is not likely to vary compared to a beach break, the wave will almost certainly break over the reef in the same way practically every time. The two key elements that affect how waves break over a reef are swell direction and tide.
