Siargao among best surf spots

Siargao n Surigao del Norte was ranked the eighth best surf spot in the world, according to the travel news website of the Cable News Network (CNN).  The list was compiled by CNNGo writer and "avid surfer" Jade Bremmer.

"This dramatic and powerful reef break, which crashes onto shallow razor-sharp coral, offers right and left death rides to those who dare. Those who do will experience a slice of paradise, or magic mushroom-like hallucinations, as the wave wraps over them like a Cornish pasty-shaped cocoon of water. Don't slip, or your skin and bones will be ripped to shreds by the ocean bed," Mr. Bremmer said about Siargao's famous "Cloud Nine".

Topping CNNGo's list of top surf spots in the world is Pipeline in Oahu, Hawaii, which was described as "the daddy of all waves."
