Surfing in Siargao

Best surf
Generally, the best months for surf in this area are August through to the beginning of November. This is when we get the most typhoon swells and the best winds. During Mai, June, and July, the surf is generally smaller. BUT when it's on the conditions are ideal. A bit of a gamble at this time of year though. From December to April the winds are often strong and cross shore, BUT the swell is always pretty big and some surfers prefer this time of year.

What to bring
When you depart for Sagana Resort there are several items you will need. These include booties, sunscreen, first aid kit, surfboard wax, etc. It is also important to have travel insurance.

Cloud Nine Cloud 9
Cloud 9 is situated directly in front of Sagana Resort, no boats needed. The wave is a classic right hander that can be both fun and challenging. Although it is a relatively short wave, the fact that it barrels nearly the whole way guarantees satisfaction.
Jacking Horse Jacking Horse
A somewhat fickle right hander that can be really fun on its day. Dependent on swell direction, but when small is a great wave for beginners.
Tuason Left Tuason Left
Some consider this the best left on the island. Hollow and shallow and only good over 3 feet. Beginners need not apply.
Rock Island Rock Island (Tuesday Rock)
Long fun forgiving right hander about a 10-minute boat ride from Sagana Resort. When it is on, this wave is so much fun and as long as any on the island.
Stimpies Stimpies
World-class left hander, also 10 minutes from Sagana Resort. This spot is EPIC! Big or Small Stimpies is what you picture when dreaming of perfect tropical surf.
Pacifico Pacifico
Another wave for the goofy footers. 1 hour boat ride from Sagana Resort. Long workable left that works on all tides.
Other Siargao waves Other waves
Within a 2-hour boat ride there are approximately 10 world-class breaks, which are always uncrowded and well worth the trip. There are also a few well guarded secret spots that can be found if you look hard enough.
