Pres'l daughter supports 14th Billabong Surfing Cup

Presidential daughter Luli Arroyo visited Gen. Luna last weekend to show her support to the on-going 14th Siargao International Surfing Competition.

In an interview with PIA, Ms. Arroyo said that she has been supporting the international surfing cup for four years.

Ms. Arroyo also said that based on her observation, the conduct of this year's surfing competition is very organized. She also made mention of the newly-constructed boardwalk in Cloud 9.

Moreover, Luli also lauded the efforts of Surigaonons especially the Siargaonons for giving full support in the successful conduct of the international surfing fete.

Meanwhile, Ms. Arroyo calls the Filipino people especially the youths to maintain and preserve the natural resources of our country because according to her, one of the reasons why foreigners are coming to Siargao is because of the wonders of nature the place have offered. "Dili na tana ta manglabay ug basura sa mga kadagatan aron ma-preserba ang atong mga natural resources" (We will not throw garbages anywhere especially the coastal areas in order to maintain our natural resources), she said.

The competition will run until Friday (Sept. 26) with the awarding of winners highlighting the closing ceremonies, where a cash prize of US$20,000 is at stake to those who will be declared this year's champion. (PIA)
