'Habagat' seaon in the Philippines

Postby reyrivera » Sat Jun 11, 2016 8:31 am

There's a chance I will be visiting family in Cebu mid August, which is the beginning of the typhoon season. I grew up partly in the Philippines in the early 1980''s and can remember some of the light frontal storm winds can be fun when we ride on a pump boat equpped for sailing.

Any South Western part of Cebu kiteable? Is it worth to bring gear to chase frontal storm winds? I want to bring gear, but not sure if its worth to drag extra luggage.

Thank you in advance for providing relevant information.

Not sure about any kite spots in south of Cebu, if there is a Beach then you can most likely kite. Habagat is often windy when a low pressure weather arrives or Typhoons (also low pressure) and it brings rain. When a rain shower passing by the wind can often go from 15kts to 30kts in less then a minute, so be aware and always look over your shoulder for black clouded and if there is one go directly to the beach and land the kite!
