Surf's Up Buenavista Sorsogon

My holiday vacation was unexpectedly followed by another surfing fun. WÄ mentioned he is going to Sorsogon a day ahead to surf with his friends, so we opted to hop into his gig. He didn't expect us to be there the next day since its about 5-hour travel from Tabaco City. 

5:30am turned out leaving the city a half an hour late. Ride is usually smooth when my father is driving. We had hot pandesal while on the road, Omar bought a couple of junk foods and found him shopping for dried fish pusit and that fish (i forgot the name) sliced into halves and dried which ended up on our lunch plates, or should I say banana leaf for a mass attack on a rice topped with adobo, pusit, dried fish serom-serom (in Bicol), and the famous danggit.

We dropped Omar's uncle and cousin at the centro where Jollibee is and decided to divulge in my first on the list of what I miss about the Philippines, a chickenjoy! All orders were of chickenjoy and after ate beyond our limits we were in a chase of nature's best energy booster,  honey. Well, I'm not sure if many people are into this kind of honey but when my father tried this one from a local seller, he tried to get a gallon or two once he is in the area. Its all natural, fresh and cheaper than the commercial ones. I love having it with iced tea and calamansi. I promise, it beats your restaurant's favorite!

Anyway, we arrived at the place seeing WÄ's group was playing frisbee. This part of Buenavista is not on a commercial resort so it looks a little deserted, which makes it special. When we parked the car, there are small huts, one is a house, a sari-sari store and one looks like a spot where you can lie down and relax. 

The children you see in these pictures are teaching tourists to surf. They are good on what they do and have earned trophies in surf competitions. I didn't ask but as to what I observed these kids are still studying secondary and elementary school. It was school break I guess, they spent all their time surfing. 

The gears are owned by Kuya Bidge, he is also responsible of these kids learning how to surf and make a living out of it during school breaks. 


We all had fun staying at the location for more than 5 hours. Papa found children climbing the coconut trees gathering fresh juice and asked for a couple of fresh ones. We devoured the coco meat. So fresh! The perks of having it in the province, its cheap and the quality at its best. Unfortunately, we had to go back at around 3pm because its gonna be another 5hour long ride back home. 

This trip was all memorable because of the laughter we shared in and out of the van. I guess I missed my high school friends, too bad the others are in the other parts of the world. We certainly missed you!

The evidently nice resolution photos are taken by a DSLR camera, the foggy ones are by my GoProHero3. Photos that do not have watermarks are own by Wang. I can't wait to submerge this baby again in the water and I am thrilled to go fog-free!
