Chalk it up to surfers to name a place after a confection. Cloud 9, possibly the best, most consistent surf break in the Philippines is named after a local chocolate bar (which you can buy in the small stores smattered about Cloud 9 and General Luna). Located in Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte in the Philippines, Cloud 9 gained a faithful surf following in the late 80s and continues to lure surfers from around the world.

I shot these with two Superheadz 110 cameras, the fisheye Demekin and the standard Noah’s Cam. Unfortunately these cameras don’t come with telephoto, so no photos of surfers.
