Siargao Seascapes: Cloud 9

In Cloud 9 in Siargao the sea is a playground, wherein the amazing waves elevate the game into a daring adventure.


Those swells beckon the free-spirited and the carefree, daring both the experts and the novices to challenge the waves.


To give in to that bet is also to overcome fear, and that is something I am not ready to conquer yet. At least as far as surfing is concerned.

Good things is, Cloud 9 is literally a haven with its naturally gorgeous seascape, beautiful enhancements, and, above all, magnificent waves. The sight of fearless surfers riding the swells is an added entertainment.




The way surfers look so attuned in their pastime is a source of admiration for someone like me that is too intimidated to give surfing a try.

  1. Conquer, challenge, no. A conversation, sharing, walking, journeying for awhile in the same direction, a tune to a waves song in the moment, just the moment. Perhaps.

    1. Should I assume that you’re not into surfing too, Sean? For someone like me that badly wanted to try it,but hindered by fear, I saw it as something to overcome 🙂

      1. Metaphors for a journey between two companions.
        Both wave a surfer travel in the same direction, each has their own story and a journey they are on to perhaps a destination. Each writes and rides it their own way, but they are companions at that moment. Think of it as like meeting a new friend (once a stranger) and finding a little adventure together for a time, and then you both go your separate ways 🙂

    1. Hi Gly, Yep, I think you’d enjoy surfing just as you do with diving. You’re a good swimmer, so the big waves wouldn’t be a big deal to you 😉 I think we are in the same mutual admiration society now, because I love your blog too!
