Skimming the Surface

"A local gets airborne as he hits the breaking waves with his skimboard at the Barangay Urbiztondo beach in San Juan, La Union, Philippines, dubbed the north's surfing capital," writes Richard Balonglong, a member of National Geographic Your Shot. "This coming summer, tourists once again are expected to flock beach resorts to unwind."
