MANILA, Philippines – Over a hundred surfers from Manila trooped to the country’s top surfing destination in San Juan, La Union to participate in the biggest event of the year: the 7th Manila Surfers Association (MSA) Cup.
Founded in 2006, the MSA is a non-profit organization representing the social and sporting interests of over 250 Manila-based surfers from various backgrounds.
According to MSA vice president JP Ong, this is the first time the group held a competition for a cause in three years.
“We have been coming to a lot of places to surf.. There are needs her that they have, so we want to do a medical mission to give back and do something more meaningful this time,” Ong said.
With the big turnout of participants in this year’s competion, the MSA said they intend to hold surf for a cause events every year. On the Scene, ANC, April 4, 2012.
