Anilao: Windsurfing

Thursday, December 24, 2009

When the sail falls, bring it back up.
Who would have thought that there's windsurfing very near Metro Manila. In Anilao Batangas, just about 3hours away from Manila is a resort which provides all the windsurfing equipments you need. You just have to show up, book a room with them and that's it. For an overnight trip, we paid just a little above P1000 for everything. The lessons, the rent, the room and even the food. We asked the owner to buy us food from the market then they just cooked it for us. It wasn't beach-season since it's December that's why we got everything at a discounted rate. Nevertheless, the sun was up and the wind was blowing.

Windsurfing can be tiring and frustrating at times. Even when the wind is not blowing, you can still move the board by adjusting the sails. Too bad we weren't professionals. Thus, a guide had to come to us in the middle of the ocean to help us adjust our sails. If don't know how to swim, being trapped in the middle of the ocean with only a surfboard on your feet and a life jacket can be pretty scary. But don't worry, the guides pretty much watch us from the beach so they can come rescue you immediately. ;)

Weight doesn't matter. You'll stay afloat.

Like the both of us in 1 board. :)
