Surfing at The Park, Real Quezon

Surfing at The Park, Real Quezon

Where were you this Holy Week?

I’m sure you all went to the beach, the mountains, spend it with family and what not.  But, I also know that a few of you, needed to work on the Holidays?  Isn’t that right?  I am no exception!  I had a few paperworks and write-ups over the Holy Week.

But, Saturday came and I’m finally free!  So, I wanted to drive some place to surf.  According to magicseaweed.com, West Side isn’t happenin’ and East Side of the Philippines got some decent swell.  I couldn’t drive to Baler or Bagasbas coz I heard it will take quite some time… and I lack sleep because I’ve been doing a marathon for Breaking Bad.

Anyway, my next option was Real, Quezon.  A new acquaintance who I met through one of our surf trips in Liwa, told me that he goes frequently to Real.  He said it takes 2 hours. — 2 hours what??!?! I drove for 3-4 hours!  The trip was longer than I expected, it was full of zigzags.  I had to drive at night on our way back home – dark, no street lights.  But I found it quite relaxing, I drove windows down, with music on full blast!

Stoked with my banana board.

It’s a 6’10” but it’s not really your typical short board.  It’s short, but you can ride it like a long board and pick-up waves at will.    It works for both big and small riders.  It’s manoeverable and easy to paddle

Real Quezon Surf Spot review

  • Waves – decent and clean, consistent (for a msw forecast of 2-4 ft.)
  • Crowd – for Holy Week season – not crowded at all (line-up at least, but there were a lot of other people swimming, camping
  • Facilities – Could be improved, outdoor showers weren’t working, too few toilets
  • Activities – Surfing, river rafting, camping and other beach sports
  • The drive - smooth roads from Ortigas Ave ext., 2-laned, but really dangerous because of a lot of zigzags and curves so you have to be careful.  I was averaging 40 kmph to  60 kmph on the curves and was only running at 80 kmph because of tricycles, and it was pretty dark at night
  • Travel time: 3 – 4 hours
  • Restaurants and dining areas: this I didn’t have any chance to explore.  They have a store that might prepare pancit canton and other stuff for you but as for real restaurant, haven’t chanced seeing any in this area.  So I guess it’s best to say, bring baon if you need to.  I didn’t need any because I went on an afternoon trip
  • Accommodations: I did a day trip so I never got to experience this.  They do offer overnight stays at affordable rates.
