  • Description



    My name is Harriet. Like you, i have been traveling most of my adult life. When i was done traveling, i chose to live in Paris for 6 years. Unfortunately, due to my longing for the sea and my surfer lifestyle, I eventually decided to move back to the Philippines.
    On 2017, i found a beautiful house in Baler, Aurora. I saw the possibility of turning it into a SurfCamp.
    The surf house is the perfect base if you would like to meet people, learn to surf or up your surfing to the next level.

    The house has 6 rooms with bunk beds, fully equipped kitchen, long dining room table, lounge and living room area, big backyard perfect for barbecue and hanging out.
    The type of volunteers we look for are those who love meeting new people, hosting different activities, easy going, always smiling and have a positive attitude.
    This is a PAID opportunity
