Surigao del Norte Governor Sol Matugas said that among the surfing sporting event that will be held at the annual festival are the National Surfing Competitions and 16th International Surfing Cup and other foreign surfing competitions held at the country’s surfing capital, Cloud 9 in General Luna, Siargao Island.

Series of activities are lined-up for the two-week yearly festival like various sports events, cultural and talent shows and tourism/trade fairs, Surigao del Norte provincial tourism officer Ivonnie Dumadag said.

Among the special guests who signified their intention to attend the first surfing festival were Vice President Jejomar Binay, Department of Tourism Secretary Alberto Lim, and Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia, Dumadag said.

Dumadag said the festival will have a grand launch tomorrow (August 5) at Paseo Cabuntog, General Luna town, Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte.

“At the grand launching, we will explain to media and invited guests why the festival was conceptualized and what are other activities at the festival to attract local and foreign tourists as we expect this year’s surfing festival will be big bang to our local tourism industry”, Dumadag said.

Governor Matugas, for her part, said re-invigorating Surigao del Norte tourism industry is one of the priority development agenda of her administration.

“We have huge potentials in tourism and we already created an international niche in the industry as we aimed more because we have not fully showcased the best of the best in Surigao tourism,” the governor said.

      why does the organizers and the department of tourism do not have numerous or rigid promotion about this festival?

      i only knew of this events in the news thru newspaper and internet.

      don't they have any sponsors?

      eventhough, the DOT should promote this event rigidly to attract local and national tourists.
