1st Dangkalan Pacific Beach Resort National Skimboarding Competition – Solidifying the Skimboarding Scene in Eastern Samar


The overwhelming talent of the local skimboarders in Samar were showcased last January 22 to 24, 2016 as Roderick “Manoy” Bazar and the local skimboarding community spearheaded the first national skimboarding contest during the 1st Dangkalan Skimboarding Competition in Dangkalan Pacific Beach Resort, Taft, Eastern Samar.


Promoting skimboarding is not an easy task, you need to be determined to show that skimboarding can help a small town generate a wide attention for its beautiful shore breaks and encourage the youth today to engage in this sport. With this event, Manoy Bazar has brought Eastern Samar in to a new level, helping his home province to be recognized as one of the best skimboarding destinations in the Philippines. With the help of Dangkalan Pacific Beach Resort and the LGU of Taft Eastern Samar, this event was made possible.
