Let’s get soaking wet
Rainy season is officially here! Now that can be a bad thing or not, depends on how you look at it and most especially, where you are. In Manila, rainy season means floodwater clogging the drains that makes an instant swimming pool for the street children.
For students and lazy people, it means more time lounging in the comfort of your bed, with a hot drink at the bedside. For working class people, it’s “come hell or high water I am still gonna show up” attitude, because hey, we are already swimming in obligations – bills, bills, and more bills, and we are keeping afloat. Rainwater would definitely not stop us.
But for the surfers, rainy season means south swell season. By definition, it is the time of the year wherein rolling waves are regularly moving without breaking. At this point, surfers flood Zambales and La Union, since the waves are really crashing the party in the west side of the Philippines there real hard.
Go where the surfers are and get out of Manila. It is just a few hours’ drive anyway. Probably the same amount of time you will spend commuting from your work to home, vice versa. So, ditch that traffic and floodwater, you won’t miss it anyway. There’s plenty of that once you come back. South swell season comes only this time around. Go beach! Ride that tide!
