Alcala, Landrigan carry RP fight in Cloud 9 surfing

Edito "Piso" Alcala and Fil-Australian Luke Landrigan will carry the fight against a host of top foreign surfers led by Queensland Open champ Nick Vasicek of Australia in Wednesday’s Billabong Cloud 9 International Surfing Championship in Siargo Island.

As the defending champion, Siargao native Alcala was given an outright seeding in the $20,000 event while Landrigan, a silver medalist in the 1st Asian Beach Games in Bali, Indonesia last year, was allotted a wild card slot.

The duo will be joined by 10 other Pinoy surfers who will be selected from the ongoing Philippine National Championship, also being held in Siargao.

Vasicek, the 2007 Cloud 9 meet runner-up, will headline a star-studded foreign cast that include Bruce Irons, Jamie O'Brien, and Dusty Payne of Hawaii, Owen Wright, Laurie Towner, Julian Wilson of Australia, and Jadson Andre of Brazil.

“With a lot of good surfers in the field, I think it will be hard to win. But I will try my best," said the 21-year-old Vasicek, who skipped last year’s tournament due to commitments back home.

One of the most prestigious events in Asia, the Billabong Invitational will be staged at the “Surfing Capital of the Philippines," featuring Cloud 9, a powerful, hollow right-hander that has been frequently compared to the renowned surf of Hawaii and Indonesia. - GMANews.TV
