Single and Unattached? La Union Wants You!

It's one of the biggest surf events of the year.

(SPOT.ph) Even before La Union was swarmed with tourists (and before surfing became a trend), locals and "serious" surfers were already ripping the waves in San Juan—hailed as the "Surfing Capital of the North." This February, the town once again celebrates its local surf culture through an annual surfing event, Single and Unattached, which runs from February 9 to 17.

Now on its seventh year, Single and Unattached is an invitational competition that showcases the classic style of single fin longboard surfing without a leash—thus the playful title especially made for Valentine’s week. It was founded by surfer-architects Buji and Nikki Libarnes with the hope of bringing back the golden days of surfing in a responsible manner.

An indoor party at Maka Studio will kick off the festival on February 9, while the actual competition starts on February 15. Aside from featuring the talent of local and international surfers, there will also be a surf art exhibit at Maka Studio, talks on environmental awareness and climate change at Clean Beach co. on February 13, and a coastal cleanup on February 17. Locals are currently pushing to stop the impending construction of a coal power plant in neighboring town Luna.
