As the brainchild of local surfing champion Wilson “Saddam” Faraon, Surfskwela prides itself on not being your regular surf school. Boasting “the ultimate surfing experience with Baler’s best,” spending your weekend with Surfskwela goes beyond the usual afternoon of running through the dos and don’ts of trying not to fall off your board.

While the innovative surf school does offer lessons that range from beginner to advanced levels, along with board rentals for whatever literally floats your boat, they can also take you past the shorebreak for a surf tour around Baler’s gorgeous and numerous surf spots.
