Siargao Hosts The World Surfing Tilt for the Year 2012


General Luna, Siargao Island --- The 18th Siargao International Surfing Cup presented by the Philippine Surfing Federation (PSF) will kick off on September 23, Sunday, at the world’s top eight surfing spot, Cloud Nine.

Congressman Guillermo Romarate, Jr. of the second district of Surigao del Norte and Vice-Governor Egay confirmed to grace the ceremonial breaking of the surfboard to pay homage to the gods of the ocean and officially open this year’s surfing festival in the Municipality of General Luna in Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte.


A professional surfer from Tahiti, Enrique Ariitu, will be up against the foreign surfers and the Philippines’ top sixteen surfers to defend his last year’s title. The local talents will be naturally enjoying the advantage of carrying local knowledge of the waves along with the support of the local crowd. Edito “Piso” Alcala, a local surfer from Siargao Island, will also be utilizing his experience at the break to his advantage to grab this year’s championship crown. In 2011, Alcala was defeated by Ariitu on a one-on-one 30-minute heat at Cloud Nine.


The Philippines’ top sixteen surfers, who were selected during last May 2012’s Siargao national competition, will also be competing with the surfers from Australia, Indonesia and Japan. They are all vying for a total prize-money of US$10,000.
