For the last hullabaloo of the year, we went surfing on the 27th of December. I went with Ara, Kat, Reno and Brian at Baler. Reno lives in Baler so we stayed in his place. Tipid. :P I already tried surfing when we went to Bagasbas; it was an interesting experience. Hehe. But on this Baler trip, I was supposed to get the best two seconds of my life, well, that was the goal. :P
Reno reserved us sleeper bus tickets on Joy Bus, the luxury bus of Genesis. We paid P700 for the non-stop bus ride with snacks, blankets and pillows. But mind you, it is very cold in the bus, make sure to wear something warm. The trip is only five hours! We arrived at Baler at around 5am, and took our free breakfast at Reno's house. We went to Sabang Beach right away. The surfing started with a quick intro and demo.

I told my senior manager that we'd be surfing, so this was a very serious business for me. She has been badgering me to get a hobby for the longest time. Hehe. :P
My instructor told me that I am a regular. See, I am a regular. I know, I am a regular. I learned as much from my Bagasbas surfing sesh. :P
Reno, Kat and Brian are all good surfers already. So, the pressure was on us! No, it wasn't easy. I got off-balance all the time. All the freaking time.
|I like this photo. :P|
|Makakaya ko din yan! ;P|
But when it was almost time, I was able to finally stand up in the surfboard. No kidding.
I know, my stance was hardly impressive. I promise, I'd be more confident next time. Yes, we'd go surfing again. :P
We paid P350 for an hour of surfing session (actually, it was more than an hour). We went to Reno's place to take our lunch, and moved to his other place. We kinda fell asleep on our way there; and decided that we badly needed rest. We slept the rest of the afternoon, and only went out for dinner.
The following morning, we decided to have another session of surfing. I'm really glad we did, because I was able to stand up in the surfboard multiple times. Don't say.. photos, or it didn't happen. It did. But we didn't take surfing photos on the second day.:P But we did have a photo op with the surfboard. :P

We'll surf again this April, and expect that I'd be more confident on my surfing photos. Gagalingan ko na! :P
