Big Swell at Cloud 9, Siargao Island, Philippines | Giant Waves | Filmed by Gaps Sabuero
Monster Swell at Cloud 9 | Big Waves, Only a few surfers out
Cloud 9, Siargao Island
The first oversized day with the 4 to 6 ft. North at 15 seconds swell peaking with Light winds. The north swell direction and its size makes it sketchy. Set waves push the rights to close out. Clean Up sets blow out further from the normal peak to the channel and all the way towards the adjacent break, quicksilver. Though pleasing to the eyes, you'd think twice paddling out.
Throughout the day, only a few out. Because of the pandemic and economic situation, it would be unwise to break boards these days for Siargao surfers.
Whatever this video is not, It is an ocean appreciation montage.
