I was lucky enough to visit Siargao, Philippines a few months ago and stayed in a wonderful town called Pacifico - which is a few hours away from the world famous surfing spots of Cloud 9 and General Luna. 

Pacifico has a few cool surf spots of its own but is generally less touristy and more laid back than the more well known locations. I spent most of my time here and chose to photograph life beyond the surf - focusing more on the local culture and people.
