Surfers from different places in the country will come to experience the world class surfing spots of Baybay II and Ayoke Island. It is unfortunate that these surfing sites have been kept in secret by some surfers so that they will have an exclusive enjoyment of the place.

This event is quietly distinct experience from the rest of surfing competitions organized all over the country because surfers, whether novice or veteran, will encounter a unique challenge as they glide with the whopping rolling waves breaking in the reef and sandy beach. Also, surfers will surely enjoy their stay while communing with nature as they visit and compete in the captivating waves of Bay-Bay II and Ayoke Island – an eco-tourism destination in the town.
