Strong and brave women are very admirable. They pulverize the stereotype notion that certain sports are only for men. More than the idea of physical strength and agility though, these free-spirited women should be our icon because they are living the life they want and pursuing their passion - surfing. Thanks to their Instagram feed which just makes you want to double tap, these ladies inspire.

Camille Pilar's writing is so true and so pure, it transports you to her world. She left her old life in the city to focus on her love for surfing in La Union while manning El Union Cafe and honing her writing skills.

The founder of Surfista Travels, Elaine Abonal, sure knows how to turn her passion into a profession that would encourage both filipino and foreign individuals to get into surfing while promoting surf spots around the Philippines. Way to go, Elaine!

Isabel is so unique and interesting. She is living my dream! How would you like to explore all the natural wonders of our country, hop from one destination to another, eat, sleep, do everything in your own van? Van-life seems challenging, but that's what makes it interesting.
