Beach concerts, parties, and lounging are free-for-all as surfers take to the waves throughout the week

If you are in search for a fun activity this Valentine’s Day, head on to the surfing capital of the north, San Juan, La Union, and take part in this annual surfing competition.

A play on words for the classic style of single fin longboard surfing without a leg rope or a leash, Single and Unattached is an invitational competition that features both Filipino surfers and international talents.

Aside from riding the waves, the event will also put highlight on more pressing matters of environmental awareness and climate change at Clean Beach on Wednesday, February 13. Particular focus will be shed on the dire effects of the impending construction of the coal power plant in the neighboring town of Luna.

Ending the event on a high note, everyone is invited to participate in the Beach Clean-up on Sunday morning, February 17.
