Surfing Photography Tips

Posted by on May 5, 2011 in Art & Photography, Featured, La Union, Sports, Surfing

Surfing is definitely one of the sports that is fun to capture. Every photo you take has something to do with how the waves form, how your subject performs his tricks and of course – luck and timing! After you get a really good capture, it’s all worth it! Show your subject your gnarly photo of him and he will appreciate it. I’m a surfer too and I know how it feels when someone...

Yes, It’s possible… At around the cool months of October to December, Boracay usually has waves.  This is when you will see people kite surfing. I forgot the name of the place renting out paddle boards and surfboards actually but you will see them along station 1 with a surfboard standing on the sand with the sign “Surf lessons here.” Last April 2010, I came to Boracay for an adventure!...

Posted by on Apr 2, 2010 in Entertainment and Lifestyle, Music, Sports, Surfing

I must say… It’s “Destiny” It’s Destiny that brought me to this gnarly music discovery! I find myself often in search for rare lovable music!

First time on a short board

Posted by on Jun 30, 2009 in Featured, Sports, Surfing

I’m a beginner surfer but this was my first time to try and ride a 6’10” short board. Riding the short board is more difficult and wobbly than the long board… you need to get used to it! I’m no pro… I’m just a beginner who likes to video my surfs so that I know what mistakes I have been doing and stuff XD Thanks to Doy for the board and to my Rockstar,...
