Enjoy the Sun, Sand, and Surf: Catanduanes Reef Break 2015

Known in Twitter-speak as #CRB2015, the Catanduanes Reef Break 2015 is the second edition of the annual surf, skate, and music festival in the "Land of the Howling Winds." It is slated to happen on May 27-30 at Puraran Beach, Baras, Catanduanes.

Aside from promoting a sustainable tourism industry for the province, the Festival aims to raise funds for the benefit of Catanduanes' surfers who now compete in the local and international scene.

Activities include downhill skate and surfing competition for those who want to share the stoke, a surf clinic for those who want to join the fun in the water, a kite festival and beach games for those who just want to bask in the sun and play in the sand, and a beach party to cap it all off.

A solemn night for the release of sky lanterns is also scheduled in memory of Festival Director and Founder Ezra Efondo who died 10 days after the first Catanduanes Reef Break.
