3 04 2016

Agno is a third class municipality in the province of Pangasinan, Philippines. It is located between Burgos(South)and Bani(North). The name of our town derived from a species of swamp tree called “Agno Casto”, a chaste tree used for medicinal concoctions to relieve pain and illness.
Our town is divided in to seventeen (17) Barangays and home of famous natural wonders and stunning beauty of nature.
Let me take you to my hometown and see  what Agno has to offer.

Surfing Baler (Again!) – Our Friends Experience The Thrill

15 09 2013

Riding the waves of Baler, Aurora.

migzhernandez17

Surfing has always captured my imagination, and has fueled my passion for a few years now. It is a water sport I not only fell in love with, but that I also want my friends and family to try.

And when I first tried it out in July 2012, I got hooked. It was inexpensive (unless you make it a hobby) compared to Scuba Diving which I tried in Coron.

Needless to say, my friends heard nothing but excitement from me when I invited them to try it, until the planning stage. I did nothing but encourage them how easy it really is and that it is even good for non-swimmers.

Sabang Beach in Baler is teeming with surfers and surfer wannabes. In the morning, and late afternoon, it looks like the first photo above.

Two of my friends already surfed when they got to Baler that weekend, Saturday morning.
