Out of Town

The First Tagadagat Surfing Competition at San Antonio, Zambales

Posted on October 15, 2012 by Lui Tortuya
Many of you are familiar with Anawangin cove, a quaint little cove famous for its white sand beach and clear blue water accessible only by 20 minute boat ride from a little fishing town called Pundaquit, on the southern tip of the Zambales coastline in San Antonio. In the last 8 years, hordes of trekkers have made the trip with camping gear in tow for a quiet weekend under the stars, away from the bustle of  urban structures. What you might not be familiar with, however, is the budding surf scene developing along the same little stretch of coastline.

Anawangin is one of the most popular summer destinations in the country - check out this EYP quicklist for more ideas on your next summer getaway.

Since the '70s and possible earlier, Pundaquit has been a destination for surfers who come to surf the amazing, rolling left-hand wave appropriately named Magic Left. There is also an increasingly popular spot a bit north named Mags because it breaks in front of a lot of land owned by the Magsaysay clan. When you imagine and consider that for thousands of years, awesome waves have been rolling and crashing along the shoreline of the little barangay, it's overwhelming that this past weekend the local surfers in a poignant coming-of-age statement organized the first ever Tagadagat Surfing Competition in Pundaquit titled Karayan. They approached the crew from Quiksilver, Roxy, and DC Shoes who are always in line to support the scene and they claimed their place in the official records of the Philippine surfing community.
