Photo of the Day: Surfing Fun

We’ve seen hundreds of great surfing photos. We’ve seen many awesome photos in better known surfing havens like Siargao and Baler. We’d feature those photos, hopefully within the days of summer, but let’s start the ball rolling (or shall we say, waves rolling?) with this one, a quick glimpse of a free-spirited surfing newbie, Pamela Jane Ducusin (@itspamelajane, check her gallery for more awesome photos), showing her stuff at Bagasbas Beach, Daet, Camarines Norte. It’s not really among the usual great shots — veteran surfers getting wiped out by thunderous waves, or cool sun-tanned wahini gracefully guiding the surf board through the angry sea. But there’s something about this photo, this lovely lady, Pamela. There’s that tilted body (probably because of the weight and size of that board) that goes with that bright smile — it’s the satisfied and giddy smile of someone who has gone beyond the white waves and came back in one piece. Oh, well, we can’t possibly fully explain the emotion. Why don’t you guys head out to the Philippines’ surf destinations, experience it first-hand, and then come back to tell us how it feels.
