The 15th Lanuza Surfing Festival

The second leg the Philippine Surfing Championship Tour will commence this coming November 5 to 11 in the revered river mouth of Doot Poktoy, Lanuza, Surigao Del Sur.

Established more than a decade ago, The Lanuza Surfing Festival is one of the most celebrated surfing events in the country. Lanuza’s famed Doot Poktoy surf spot, one of the longest right hander waves in the country located on the Pacific seaboard, is the perfect venue for our Filipino surf athletes who are vying to claim the first PSCT Lanuza title.

The event also became an avenue to promote its other tourist attractions such as the Magkawas Falls, Campamento Cave and Silop Cold Spring, which make Lanuza a complete surf holiday destination.
