San Fernando City in La Union is one of the TOP Ranking Small Competitive Cities in the Philippines cited recently by the Asia Institute of Management.

Location Map of La Union

San Fernando City lies 270 kilometers north of Manila. It became a city by an Act of Congress in 1998. The population is 102,000 during weekends but about 130,000 to 150,000 during weekdays because, aside from being a provincial and regional capital, it is also a center of education and trade. The city prides itself in being one of the most peaceful cities of a peaceful region.

Firm bares P1.3-B plan to develop part of Poro Point into tourism complex

Quezon City (11 January) -- The Thunderbird Resort, Inc., a 100-percent foreign owned, publicly listed and traded company based in San Diego, California, USA, formally announced its plan here to develop portions of the 65.5-hectare tourism complex of the Poro Point Special Economic and Freeport Zone with an initial fund of P1.31 billion.

"We are pleased and excited to introduce and present Fiesta Poro to our friends and neighbors throughout the Philippines," said Glynis Salvatera-Balagot, marketing director of Thunderbird's Fiesta Poro.

"We are certain Fiesta Poro will be a smashing success and will grow to become an important building block for the expansion of tourism throughout the Ilocos region," she said.

Balagot said the Poro Point development project called "Fiesta Poro" is Thunderbird's second destination resort development in the Philippines following the successful construction and launching of its flagship property in Binangonan, Rizal which is called "Fiesta Rizal".

She said the Fiesta Poro Development Plan includes the construction of a championship and public golf course; renovation of the historic Poro lighthouse, new recreational facilities for the public, retail and restaurant establishments, passenger cruise vessel facilities, aquatic theme park and surf pool, gun and skeet shooting ranges, beach villas, resort hotels and condominiums, convention facilities, and tourist, vacation and retirement village housing.

Balagot said that once complete, Fiesta Poro is expected to create 5,000 to 10,000 direct full time jobs for Filipinos especially residents of La Union.

As with its Fiesta project, Thunderbird's Fiesta Poro project is totally funded by foreign investment. In addition, Thunderbird reaffirmed its pledge and commitment to locally source and purchase its available project needs from personnel to services to supplies and equipments.

Surfing addicts from Manila enjoying their sweet time in La Union


RP President GMA and her first family, Ms. Luli Arroyo especially, surf the San Juan LU waves frequently when their busy schedule allows them.

Surf’s up! GMA rolls with the waves in La Union By Jun Elias The Philippine Star 12/28/2005

SAN JUAN, La Union — When the going gets tough, the tough go… surfing?

President Arroyo enjoyed a 45-minute surfing session here yesterday, but not with First Gentleman Jose Miguel Arroyo who suffered mild hand cramps due to the cold seawater, according to a surf instructor who assisted them.

Luc Landrigan, one of the four local surfers who trained the First Couple, told The STAR that Mrs. Arroyo was a fast learner and showed good balance even though she is a novice surfer. "The President is okay, she enjoyed the session and she is a fast learner," he said.

Together with their daughter Luli, the First Couple traveled down from Baguio City to celebrate their vacation at La Union, known for its imposing waves. Luli and her father arrived early in the morning while the President arrived at 1:45 p.m. along with grandchildren. Brothers Datu and Mikey Arroyo were not present.

The Arroyo outing was strictly a private affair and local media were politely asked not to take photos and not to conduct interviews with the First Family. However, some media outlets were able to shoot pictures and footage.

Luc, a member of the La Union Surfing Club, said he was "overwhelmed" at the prospect of teaching the President surfing techniques. "I can’t imagine, I was able to teach the President. She easily did the basics (of surfing). It’s only her second time to do surfing," he added.

The STAR was there to watch as the President had her surfing session. Mrs. Arroyo had no trouble climbing onto and lying on top of the surfboard; but she had a harder time keeping her balance while standing and maneuvering. Still, it’s a skill not many first- or second-timers can master right away. The surfing lesson was held at the seashore of Urbiztondo in this town.

Luc said Luli took to surfing a bit quicker because it is one of her regular sports activities whereas the First Gentleman had difficulty balancing atop the surfboard, perhaps due to his weight.

While surfing, the First Couple mixed with local and foreign surf enthusiasts. Their security was tightly enforced with Navy and Coast Guard patrol boats and policemen.

Joining the First Family were local officials led by Gov. Victor Ortega, San Fernando City Mayor Mary Jane Ortega, City Councilor Pablo Ortega and San Juan town mayor Arturo Valdriz.

San Fernando City (LU) awarded as a “Dream City"

San Fernando City in La Union was recognized as one of the promising cities in the country during the presentation and recognition ceremony held last Wednesday, August 10,2005 at the Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-La.

Mayor MaryJane C. Ortega, in her presentation in a high-tech simulated hopping trip around the country’s “dream cities”, said that the city government under her stewardship has inched closer to goals they aimed to accomplish between five to 10 years from now based on the vision and mission as well as the city’s development strategy.

The first lady city mayor said that she aims to develop both the environment and the people focusing on the 20-hectare botanical garden and providing livelihood skills training to her constituents and promoting vibrant business opportunities to make for a more economically viable city.

Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao, chairman of the Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA), which is the principal sponsor of the project, said that the selection process was based on realistic goals in terms of local management, delivery of basic services, education and infrastructure, among others.

ISA is an international organization crusading for the adoption of the Public governance System (PGS) for local government units (LGUs) similar to the “balanced scorecard principle” used by private corporations and multinational firms to determine achievement of set goals within a given time frame.

The project is being supported by a grant from the USAID, the Asia Foundation and the Center for International Private Enterprise in Washington, D.C.

Other cities selected as “dream cities” include Tagbilaran in Bohol, Calbayog, Samar, Iloilo in the Visayas, Naga in Bicol, Samal Island City, Cebu City and Marikina in Metro Manila.

The respective mayors namely MaryJane C.Ortega, Dan Neri Lim, Mel Sarmiento, Trenas, Jesse Robredo, Rogelio Antalan, Tomas Osmena and Fernando were also recognized as the first batch of ISA fellows committing themselves to pursue the plans they have laid out for their cities

Surfing Paradise

Marvel at the beauty of a surfer’s ride on top of a thick, curling wave. Or wonder at the sight of a surfer coming out of a long, tube-like wave.

There’s no need to go to Hawaii, America or Indonesia to see and experience an aquatic scene that seems like poetry in motion.

The Philippines is one of the world’s last frontiers for surf exploration. Some of the great surf destinations are hardly accessed because of their far location.

But the surfing area in San Juan, La Union stands out from the rest, not because it has better waves, but due to its accessibility from the Big City. It’s more accessible compared to other popular surf areas in Siargao Island in Mindanao, Daet in Bicol or Baler in Aurora.

Just a six-hour drive from Manila, the La Union surf point can be a perfect getaway after a busy week.

Hiroshi Yokohama, a Japanese who is married to former actress and beauty queen Maria Isabel Lopez and has made the Philippines his home, has seen surfing’s potential not only in tourism but as a sport.

Yokohama established the first and only school of surfing in the country in 1997.

Based in the coastal barangay of Urbiztondo, the Yokohama Surfing School has already taught more than 500 students, including celebrities like Jericho Rosales, Marvin Agustin, Raymond Bagatsing and Raymond Keanu.

“After learning the basics, my students go on their own, bringing with them their own surfboards,” says Hiroshi whose love for the Philippine waves started when he visited the Majestic Surf Point in Catanduanes in 1990.

Potential

“I figured that surfing has a big potential in this country. Now, I’m proud that I am helping promote the sport and the Philippines as a tourism spot. Surfing is getting more popular, there are lots of good Filipino surfers now and I’m proud of this accomplishment.”

Hiroshi says a student doesn’t have to be a good swimmer. Sessions are done at shallow parts of the water. A chord is then tied to one of the student’s feet and is attached to the surfboard.

Veteran surfers are allowed to paddle 100 meters away from the beach to catch bigger waves.

Isabel is fully supportive of Hiroshi, although she ironically learned surfing not in their own school.

“I had great fear of waves, afraid that it will engulf my whole being. ‘Pag tinuturuan ako ng husband ko, ang dami kong reklamo kaya lagi kaming may argumento,” she says.

“So he enrolled me in a surf school in Hawaii. There, siyempre natuto na ako kasi nahihiya akong magreklamo sa tutor ko,” she said.

Although the ideal surfing season in La Union is from December to January, small waves swell anytime and are just good enough for beginners.

The biggest swell go as high as three to four meters or about 8 feet in Hawaiian counting, measuring the length from the backside of the barrel.

The husband-and-wife tandem also put up a surf shop and café at the second floor of Robinson’s Manila, where surfers can trade stories about their experiences and compare notes about new surfing discoveries while sipping their favorite coffee.

“Surf enthusiasts can also ogle at the latest design in surfing stuffs here,” added Isabel, who’s also very proud of her 12-year-old daughter Mara, probably the youngest surfer in the country.

Mara, who is a natural adventurer like her father, has won a trophy in the recent La Union Surf Festival, where she defeated several male participants. Mara, who occasionally comes out in the movies, is also into snow ski, ice ski, roller blade, rock climbing, skateboarding and volleyball.

For Mara, these are just hobbies. “I love nature and animals,” said Mara while holding her cute beagle named Sparky. “But surfing is now my current passion.”

History

The Philippines boasts of surfing areas that are comparable to Hawaii and elsewhere in the world.

Surfing took its roots here in the 1960s when American servicemen, who were based at Clark Air Field and Subic Naval Base, combed the northern coasts for possible surf points.

The La Union breaks were one of the first areas discovered, including Baler Bay on the east coast. Both areas became weekend surf destinations.

More surf explorations followed. Australian tourists discovered major breaks in Catanduanes and Siargao Island.

Siargao surf was christened “Cloud Nine” by its discoverers after a no-melt chocolate bar, which they bought at a small store in the island.

Cloud Nine’s popularity was credited to international surfing photographer John Callahan, who published a magnificent photograph of a gigantic 10-meter wave in various magazines. Soon after, inquiries poured in.

Realizing its tourism potential, the Department of Tourism, provincial government of Surigao del Norte and the municipality of General Luna, have began conducting a yearly tournament to drum up more interest and promote tourism in the area.

Mindanao’s security problem, however, has slowed down the influx of foreign visitors.

To local enthusiasts, the proximity of La Union is a blessing. The place is relatively safe. They can surf all daylong and stay overnight. Or head straight back to Manila, while still relishing a refreshing weekend date with nature. Randy Caluag
