Zambapalooza 2012

On its 6th consecutive year, Zambapalooza has been in the forefront of promoting the booming boardsports tourism in Zambales, spearheading a unique fusion of boardsports competition in one event, surfing, skimboarding, skateboarding, longboard push race and now downhill longboarding.

Zambapalooza’s roots was when the surfing industry was being cultivated by local surfers in Zambales. Now, surfing, skimboarding, longboarding and skateboarding scene in the province of Zambales became a big hit, making the province one of the most promising surfing destinations in the Philippines, with a little bonus, it’s just few hours away from Manila.

Boasting the richness and diverse boardsports community, Zambales is home to a remarkable places like Crystal Beach Resort in San Narciso, the ever surfers favorite Magic Left in Brgy. Pundaquit, San Antonio and The Circle Hostel, located in Liwa-liwa, San Felipe which was recently featured in Homegrown.ph for being one of the leaders in promoting social tourism in the country.

With the support of Local Government and brands like DC, Quiksilver, Roxy, Monster Energy, Vans and other sponsors and with the relentless passion of the Zambales Boardriding Association with its president, and a good friend of ours, Mark Ramos, the Zambapalooza 2012 has established itself as the last and most promising boardsports event to be anticipated every year. “It’s a tradition, Zambapalooza is a brand that will be treasured for years by boardsports enthusiasts in Zambales. We’ve started My Life on Board during Zambapalooza in 2010. It was one of first event that we have featured in Mylifeonboard.net,” said, Michael Eijansantos, Managing Director of Mylifeonboard.net, one of the official media partners of Zambapalooza for 3rd consecutive year.

The fusion of boardsports competition was pioneered by Zambapalooza. Every boardsports community in the Philippines converge in this yearly celebration. The best local bands and performers from Manila  also shared their talent to boost the enthusiasm of participants during the event.
