La Union Surf School and Camp


La Union, meaning “the union” in Spanish is situated on the South China Sea and is also known as the surfing capital of the North. It is one of the best places to learn to surf in the world, due to its mellow beach and point breaks, together with a friendly atmosphere unique to the Philippines.

Consistent quality north swells can be found from October-April, known as the “Amihan” season, with the “Habagat” season producing south swells from June-September, with waves ideal for beginner to intermediate surfers.

First discovered by surfers in the 80s, La Union attracts surfers of all levels, local and foreign.
In true Filipino spirit, an annual surf competition, called the “Filipino-Foreigner friendship contest” is held at its fabled Mona Liza point.

La Union Surf School is the premier surf school in the Philippines, certified by ASI (Academy of Surfing Instructors in Australia). We apply the highest safety standards recognized globally within the surf school industry. All our instructors are ASI certified and hold lifesaving and first aid qualifications.

Our surf courses are designed to meet each student’s needs to get the most from their surfing experience. Whether you just want to give surfing a try or would like to actively pursue the surfing lifestyle, we have the right course for you!

Our surf camp is based at Flotsam and Jetsam beach hostel, a 1 minute walk to a long point break and beach breaks. A short drive away are other excellent reef and beach breaks and our surf coaches and guides will get you dialled into the right wave for your level and surf experience.

As the saying goes: “It’s more fun in the Philippines” and with La Union Surf School and Camp, your surfing experience will certainly be a thrill filled with stoke!

Mabuhay- Welcome to La Union and the Philippines!
