As promised, here’s what went down at stop number 2 of the Bicol Surf Jam held at Buenavista Surf Camp, Gubat, Sorsogon last October 16-18, 2015! For those who do not know, Lunad sa Balod  happens to be one of Sorsogon’s first ever national surfing competition and the timing was just classic. The competition roughed it out with Bagyong Lando as it was also battering the northern part of the Philippines, Gubat saw some big, stormy surf but that did not slow down these bad boys!
