The Catanduanes Reef Break is an event geared towards helping the locals of Catanduanes, specifically in Puraran, through providing proper boards and uplift their well-being – one local at a time. It is an event organized by Surf Catanduanes and Surf4Ezra, a non-profit organization (founded by High School batch mates and friends) dedicated to continue the advocacies of Ezra ‘Tisoi’ Efondo. The specific objectives of the Catanduanes Reef Break 2015 still remain: first, to generate funds that would enable our local surfers to buy quality surfboards, as well as to fund their travel expenses during competitions; and second, to foster, develop, and promote sustainable tourism industry in Catanduanes Island.
I arrived while Reggae Mistress was onstage and immediately went to find my friends, The Chongkeys.
Someone took this photo, of the guy sitting on the step on the right, and I just got included.
The Chongkeys and I all went in together but I went to the bar first to get a drink and then on to the mezzanine to take photos and videos. My first reaction when I went in was, “WOW, this place is HUUUUUGE!” See, I’ve never been to Metro Bar before. Jeck Pilpil & Peacepipe went onstage first. And this blog is part 1 of 3.
