Local’s Perspective: Zambales


True enough, Zambales is one of our favorite surf spots in the Philippines. The accessibility, friendly and hospitable locals, the simple local life and the left hander waves made it a top notch surf and skim destination whenever the south swell season starts to roll in our country.

The day to day life in this small fishing Barangay starts with a fresh fish for breakfast.   

Home away from Home

We consider Zambales our home away from our home. Whenever we’re there with the locals, hanging around Dada’s kubo, waiting for the swell to come in, you’ll deeply appreciate the simplicity of life.

I always see these boys wearing their boardshorts, I rarely see them wearing their school uniform. Well I think because I always wake up late in my hammock.
