The curly 9 Pacific waves are strong bringing its strength to the beaches of Siargao island wherein a lot of people are interested to ride those muscular waves. So, with a little hesitation, I flew to this island to witness the wave game. But I found myself wondering why no one was doing the action packed sport fun, Surfing. Only later I knew the reason why. That was not the ideal time to visit, and experience the sport. A storm was brewing during that time. Waves that continuously splash the beaches of General Luna were not good enough to ride on. Perfect waves emerge and show up in the middle weeks of August up to the last week of October. But that was not a sorry thing. I had more time touring the island.

During that time, taking pictures at the Boardwalk observation deck was difficult due to strong winds and rains. I almost got swept by the gusty air at the third floor of the deck.

If you don’t follow your guide’s instructions you’ll get to see the unexpected and the unsurprising view of your intended site for viewing. This is what I got for the “Magpupungko” perspective. You know why? I did not catch the low tide panorama because we were late for the scene. The high tide overtook us. It was supposed to be a sight of smaller pools of water where visitors can enjoy the splashes of the waves caught in knee deep sort of basin pools.
