More than just a fun and exciting event, the Siege of Baler 2 surf competition will also benefit a great cause. The Ruperto Zubia Sr. Elementary School in Sabang, Baler will be the recipient of the proceeds from the competition. This is due to many local Baler-based surfers having gone to school here, as well as being the current school for many young pro surfers-to-be. In fact, should you be heading over to Siege of Baler 2 this weekend, feel free to bring along school supplies such as pencils, notebooks, and ballpoint pens to help the kids out with their education.
