A Brand New Year

Looking Forward

Happy 2013!

I want to thank everyone who continues to check out my posts. Before closing my eyes at night, I say a little prayer of thanks. Ordinarily, I dream about the photos to take, the things to say… it is in my dreams that my stories start to spray.

Wind and WaveBoat

The Holgafication of my Nikon makes it feel like an all new cam… the same old beach in Ilocos like a new place.

Pagudpud Beach Rules

Surf Sunday

A summer’s day in December. From Kapuluan Vista Resort to Kingfisher in Capirispisan, two worlds apart divided by pursuits. If surfing is your thing, KVR rules. Boards and instructors won’t be a point of issue. If you want to ride the wind, then head to Kingfisher, the only resort in Ilocos that offers kite surfing.

Enjoy the Pagudpud photos…

Eugene on Board

Ivon and I chilled out and took photos of Ericke, Euge and Brandon while being taught by Jed and Sherwin the basics of surfing. Having surfed on and off from the time the dad brought her to pro surfer Luke Landrigan in San Juan (La Union) when she was preteen to the present, Ericke is naturally drawn to the waves.

We have a mutual love for the ocean, but no one among us has ever kite surfed. Controlling the board and the kite must be demanding. Anyhoo, the rustic appeal of Kingfisher will make you want to stay around longer.

Ultimately, the most essential rule at the beach is to love the beach.

Sea Spell

Beach Hut

Unearthing an obscure beach in Bobon, Burgos, with charming scenery and good pointbreaks. Best of all, the immense space was uncrowded, allowing a feeling of isolation… the luxury of total requiescence.
