Kiteboarding Siargao

Class 1 Philippines Kiteboarding / Kitesurfing Destination

Kiteboarding is new as a sport in Siargao, which is a bit of surprise as we have been telling people about it for some years. Especially during the northeast monsoon, the West coast of Siargao receives steady kiteboarding breezes, uninterrupted in their passage across the northwest Pacific Ocean. Add to this the opportunity for experienced kiteboarders to launch of incoming rollers and you have the Siargao recipe for a kiteboarding vacation that will bring you back time and again for more.

The ‘discovery’ of Siargao by kiteboarders is largely due to the more frequent flights direct to the island, from Cebu making it inevitable that eventually someone with a keen interest in sport would establish a resort business that would make kiteboarding its focus.

Kiteboarding Locations Around Siargao

Kiteboarding around Siargao is most rewarding along in the East coast in the vicinity of Pesangan, between the town of General Luna and the famous Cloud 9 surf break, to the North.

Pesangan sits behind a barrier reef that provides shallow, almost flat water, perfect for beginners and kiteboarders lusting for speed. Experienced kiteboarders looking to launch off waves can venture beyond the reef, where waves of almost every size can be found at different places along the reef’s outer edge.

The extent of Pesangan easily surpasses the more established Philippine kiteboarding location of Bulabog Beach, Boracay. The protection offered by the height of the reef creates much smoother water inside, for beginners and speed-kiteboarders.

If there is another relevant comparison with Bulabod Beach, Boracay, it is that, at least for the foreseeable future, on any given day there are few lines to tangle with in Siargao.
