On February 23 and 24, MSA-registered wave riders will get a chance to play and display against one another in various longboard and shortboard divisions: Novice, Open, Invitational and an open-to-all Costume Division, all of which will be held at Urbiztondo Beach, San Juan, La Union.

This also marks the 8th year celebration of MSA. With its 300-strong membership base of Manila-based surfers ranging from casual beginners to hardcore regulars, it aims to create positive impact in surfing communities all over the Philippines.
