Brief History of Majestic Puraran Surfing Competition:

Yearly, to celebrate the majestic waves of Puraran, Baras, Catanduanes and celebrating the Catandungan Festival, a national surfing competition is being held here at Puraran, and with participating surfers from, La Union, Zambales, Siargao, Sorsogon, Daet and Manila. The waves in Puraran are comparable to that of Cloud 9 in Siargao which is why these local surfers always look forward to this surfing competition. These majestic waves are discovered by Australian surfers in the 1980’s and have been the first in the Philippines to be featured in Surfer Magazine in 1988. Puraran is gaining it’s limelight in the local surf scene.
