Surf and Turf La Union Highlights

The constant flow of rolling swells off the San Juan waters has given La Union a reputation for being a surf Mecca of sorts. Surf resorts have powered the tourism flow for the state for the past four decades. Major events such as the “2012 Surf & Music” festival, co-sponsored by Aloha Boardsports and Beyond outdoors Adventures held right on the beach in San Juan is evidence enough that La Union is a go-to surf destination for years to come. It’s a perfect place to learn and hone ones skill in the art of shred because the swells serendipitously accommodate all levels of skill with a board (long or short).

Here’s something you might not know about La Union; it’s also trail heaven for bikers. There are three major trails in the immediate vicinity, and they all vary in difficulty. There’s a city ride that takes you through two towns, historical places and landmarks, exceptional food stops (the city of San Fernando boasts the best halo-halo in the country, care to dispute their claim?), and your average, run-of-the-mill breathtaking scenery.  The more technical rides are just a few kilometres off the surf shacks. Experience the Bacsil ridge trail and the more daunting (but adrenaline filled) Arosip ecotrail.

Imagine waking up with a seaside view, you grab your board and paddle out to catch a few sets while breakfast is being prepared. After that, you can either impersonate driftwood and veg-out until your next glorious meal or you can hit the swells again. After lunch, you feel a bit soaked, so you hit the trails. Whether you carve dirt or crave shaved ice, the bike ride gives you the added dimension to an already stoke-filled day. As soon as you’re done flying down the side of a mountain, you then proceed to dinner and drinks, looking forward to repeating the day tomorrow. Well, in reverse.
