The Asian corner of the Pacific may not have the same depth of surf culture that is apparent among the Polynesian nations to the east, nor does it benefit from both the booming northern and southern hemisphere swells, yet it is an enigmatic, challenging and ultimately rewarding surfing destination when the conditions conspire. Follow the annual beat of the monsoon, or chase the biggest storms on earth as super-typhoons traverse the uber-deep water of the Mariana Trench and magic up swell events that awaken a host of waves throughout the Philippine and China Seas.
