21st Siargao Surfing Cup at Cloud 9 Upgraded to QS1,500

General Luna, Siargao Island, Philippines (Tuesday, July 18, 2015) -
 The Philippines is preparing to host one of its biggest international events, the 21st Siargao Surfing Cup at Cloud 9. This year’s event has been upgraded to hold a QS1,500 rating and will be co-sanctioned by the ASC (Asian Surfing Championship Tour) and is likly to attract a mix of local talent as well as surfers from Indonesia, Japan, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Europe.

Last year local hero Piso Alcala (PHI) took out the event in classic conditions in the event’s 20th anniversary. Alcala possesses world-class tube riding skills and put on a clinic at his home break and will be looking to go back-to-back as the event enters its 21st year.

“I was so happy to win last year with such great surfers in the event,” Alcala said. “I really can’t wait to compete this year and hopefully I can achieve the same results. It was great to recently compete in Bali and now I have more confidence to compete at home.”

General Luna’s Mayor Rusillion has been a strong supporter of this event and surfing at Cloud 9 for a long time and is often referred to as the Godfather of surfing in Siargao and founder of the Philippine Surfing Federation. Mayor Rusillion is working with Governor Sol Matugas and the local government to grow this event to be the biggest in the event’s history and will offer $50,000 USD prize-money.

“WSL is thrilled to be returning to the Philippines for what is set to be the biggest and best Siargao Cloud 9 Surfing Cup yet,” said WSL Australasia Tour Manager Will Hayden-Smith. “Cloud 9 truly lives up to its name and is one of the best waves in the world. Upgrading this event to a QS1,500 and dual sanctioning with the ASC will help us to attract some of the best surfers to this fantastic event.”

The event will run from September 24 - 29 with surfer registration to be held on the 23rd.
