Windsurfing in the Philippines

Boracay is an island of the Philippines located approximately 315 km (200 miles) south of Manila and 2 km off the northwest tip of Panay Island in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines. In 1990, it was voted by the BMW Tropical Beach Handbook as one of the best beaches in the world!

Daytime temperatures on Boracay generally range from 25-32°C from the beginning of the Amihan season (September through to Mayish) and increase to about 28-38°C. In the Philippines, Amihan refers to the season dominated by the trade winds, which are experienced in the Philippines as a cool northeast wind. It is characterized by moderate temperatures, little or no rainfall, and a prevailing wind from the east. Tropical Storms can impact Boracay at any time of year, but are most likely to be seen during the opposite Habagat season.

Throughout the rest of the year, the Philippines experiences the west or southwest wind & monsoons, which in turn is referred to as the Habagat. The Habagat season is characterized by hot and humid weather, frequent heavy rainfall, and a prevailing wind from the west.

Most of the Philippines is laid back, stable and relatively safe for travelling - and is, of course, cheap. The Philippino people have a rich culture and are helpful, cheerful and friendly.
