The Inertia

There’s something in Siargao we call “Three Days of July”. This time each year, we expect a three-day swell in the Philippine Sea that breaks the typical summertime knee-high flat spell between April and June. “Three Days in July,” never fails to deliver. Like clockwork, it always arrives.

It’s usually treated as a pregame warmup for the upcoming season. This year’s swell, however, was extra. By a night, waist-high Cloud 9 turned into seven-foot bombs. Some say they got the best tubes of their lives, to the point that this could already Cloud 9’s swell of the year. Realistically, this was just a precursor. The season has yet to peak and we can’t fully know what to expect just yet. Maybe this was just the beginning.
