You can not ignore the waves, and have a second look when the surfers began to smash in the perfect waves that began to form in the beach of General Luna, where Cloud 9 located. This is one of the best of Siargao!
General Luna not only gifted of being white sanders, beautiful Guyam, Dako, Bikini, La Januza, and Corrigedor Islands, but was a home to professional surfers of the world. Cloud 9 is just one of the surfing sites to make it big and became a hit in the international scene.
Witness different surfers coming from the different parts of the globe gathered in one place, and have some fun in the sea. A contest of who will be the best surfers in the world takes place in the last week of September, dubbed as Siargao International Surfing Competition. Siargao is the surfing capital of the Philippines.
When I set foot in front of Cloud 9, along the white sand beach of General Luna, of course, it is still a long way to go. You have to take a walk the stairway to heaven before reaching Cloud 9. Of course, heaven is far away…but this time clouds will become your heaven when seeing the waves of Cloud 9. A ticket of your dream in reaching the tip of your soul which is peace and happiness within yourself as you take a look between surfers and the waves, waves and the horizon, islands and white sands, and friendly peoples along the way. These are the way we belong to Caraga.
The Magic of Cloud 9
Reaching the end of the stairs, you can grip yourselves, relax, and see surfers in action. You forgot something in this world before you seeing those waves began to form in giants. Fantastic things began to emerge in one unique setting between surfers and the waves flying and smashing. I remember my friend saying that when you are a starter to this field you have to give time to play with the waves…later you will become addicted to it. Even you’ve got a hard fall and devastated with pain and bruises, you still manage to go and become a surfer. The best part of being a surfer, you enjoy of what you are doing. You have to take your time and pass it on to the world you belong, and forget everything in this world. And done the best of your life.
But for spectator like me, yes, I’m still part of Cloud 9. Even though you are not a surfer but you enjoy seeing them – the waves and the surfers – and me, became the third party which completes the scenery. Showing us the innate beauty of this unique place, all you have to do is look and navigate every angle of the waves, and you can say (wow!) as time passes by. The intimate feelings you’ve got when looking at Cloud 9 is so different. It will make you healthy and powerful person to live with as you go with nature like this. Do not miss single seconds of the day as the show began in its place.
