The Surfing Capital of the North, San Juan, La Union, will host The REEF Pro 2017, the fourth and final leg of the Philippine Surfing Championship Tour (PSCT) this coming December 5 to 9, 2017.

La Union is squeezed in between the Cordillera mountain ranges and the West Philippine Sea, which gives La Union its unique ecological and marine diversity.

Surfing started in San Juan back in the 80’s when Japanese surfers came to surf its perfect right-hander waves now known as the Monalisa Point.

The PSCT overall champions will be proclaimed during the REEF Pro La Union. Philmar Alipayo (Siargao) currently holds the top spot of the PSCT leaderboard with a total of 450 points followed by Neil Sanchez (Baler) with 310 points. Sanchez showed an outstanding performance during the Lanuza leg, which gave him the points he needed to boost his position from equal 9th place to 2nd place. Jay-R Esquivel (La Union) currently holds equal 3rd position in the rankings, which makes La Union REEF Pro more exciting being his homebreak. Will Esquivel use homecourt advantage to take over the top spot? Find out next week!

The ongoing Oakley Pro Baler, which is a Grade 3 PSCT event, is the deciding factor that may change the lineup of surfers who will be seeded for the upcoming REEF La Union Pro.
