On the island of Siargao, tourism has come to a standstill. COVID-19 hit The Philippines hard, and after a complete lockdown for two months, hotels and resorts here have lost all their business.
Our wakepark was a dream come true. Hidden in the trees on the remote island of Siargao - the surfing capital of The Philippines - it was possibly the world’s most picturesque wakepark. A place of pilgrimage for boarders, filmers, photographers, and a place for the local kids to get stoked on and learn from the world’s greatest riders - that was the dream. And it took two tough years of permit-seeking and careful planning to bring it to life. Once the final emergency flights left the island in 2020 however, the tourists were gone and the island fell silent. We have been able to sustain the wakepark ourselves, until now. Today, we need your help.
