La Union Surfing Break Returns With Month-Long Event To Be Held In San Juan, Caba, Agoo & Bacnotan

La Union Surfing Break 2022


Surfing season is almost here. So, if you missed the La Union Surfing Break that had been put on hold during the pandemic, you’re in for a huge treat.

La Union Surfing Break is finally returning with a festival that spans all 4 weekends in October 2022, instead of the usual 3 days. The event has also grown to 4 towns in the province – Agoo, Caba, Bacnotan, and San Juan – from only 3 towns in 2019.


What is the La Union Surf Break?

La Union Surfing Break, or simply Surf Break, is a music and arts festival, like our local, seaside Coachella.

The festival is named that way because it’s timed during university students’ semestral break. It also marks the start of surfing season in La Union.


What to expect

More than a series of concerts that feature local music artists, there’s so much more to the La Union Surf Break. You can enter contests on social media to win gift certificates to dining spots along Urbiztondo Beach in San Juan.

To balance out your nights of partying, join surf lessons and other sports and wellness events such as yoga classes during the daytime.

There are also Eco Patrol events such as coral and mangrove planting activities and beach clean-up drives, so you can help preserve La Union’s natural beauty.
