It will be sanctioned by the United Philippine Surfing Association and presented by Borongan City, the Eastern Samar provincial government, and also the province’s lone legislative district.

Twenty of the participating surfers from Siargao Island are men while six are women.

Of the male participants, 11 will be competing in the Junior Boys Short Board Division and nine in Men’s Open Short Board Division.

Four of the six female athletes will also compete in the Women’s Open Short Board Division and two in the Junior Girls Short Board Division.

The surfers from Siargao Island, who received full support from the Office of Surigao del Norte 1st District Rep. Francisco Jose Matugas II and the Gen. Luna municipality, were formally sent to the venue of the upcoming event on Thursday.

In a statement, Matugas wished the surfers the best of luck to bring home the major prizes of the event.

“We ask the people of Siargao Island to pray for the safety and success of our players. The future is bright for our very own surfers in Siargao,” he said.
