What reasons do i need to be interested in surfing? Meeting girls, singing, dancing and socializing with other surfers are just some of the things that beginners bring into the lifestyle. That's what people do when the surf is flat, is it not?
To be able to handle myself in a situation in real surf is the kind of lesson that i'll put my money on. So what you're saying is that because i choose to have Zambales or La Union locals teach me surfing makes it wrong? The popular destinations are popular for a reason and not for the reasons that you want to be correct.

Whatever you say. You are right with all your posts? Anyone with any brains will realise that I am wrong right now.

I'd like to let everyone know that I am not here to just promote the Philippine Surfing Academy. Surfing in the Philippines is very young and it is growing at a rapid rate. PSA does a good job at helping promote and expose surfing to the people of the Philippines. We are doing our best not only to promote PSA, but surfing as a whole. We have clients that have had lessons at either the wave pool, or at one of our surf locations. Many of our students want to try places where we dont conduct lessons because there are already surf coaches available at those locations. We strongly suggest to our clients to only surf with an experienced coach when they go to those locations.

so you guys that are critical of what Paolo and I are doing, think twice. We are generating business for the whole surfing community. Our clients go to Zambales, La Union, Baler, Siargao and even to Bali and we tell them to make sure they at least pay a coach to instruct them where to go and keep an eye on them. So business that was never going to come is helping local coaches in those areas.

So tell me Daryl, are you and Tim one and the same? If not, do you and Tim practice the same kind of pricing for everyone or for select types of people? As an Australian, you know full well that equal pricing for everyone is fair business practice. What i read about Tim is that he gouges everyone who he sees as naive about the going rate for a surf session. When that someone compares prices with someone else who've taken the same session, they usually find that there was price gouging involved. I've read that you charge really high for lessons. Is that for everyone or is that only for selected people? And how would you differentiate yourself from a local who also does what you do?

They're all the same. They advertise for their surf "schools" in this forum when it's discouraged and they charge different prices depending if you're a Pinoy from abroad, Pinoy from a well to do family or a simple Pinoy. If they ignore the forum's rules what makes you think they play by the rules? Where's the tax receipts Daryl? Was it paid yet? Maybe you can just give me a board.
